And a shadow box is filled with butterflies and beetles. The work space has been getting smaller and smaller this week….. good job I'm only working on some tiny bees today! . . . . #bees #honeybee #paper #sculpture #onmydesk #wip #workinprogress A post shared by Kate Kato (@kasasagi.design) on Sep 6, 2017 at 8:27am PDT Rather than striving for exact scientific replication, Kato allows the original material to show through. And lending a spirit of handcrafted whimsy to her work. Here's that second commission I finished last week! An Observer Book of Garden Flowers filled with Nigela, Sweet Peas, an Iris a Rose and Pheasants Tail grass…… marked a nice end to the summer making!

I love the bright colours you see this time of year! A post shared by Kate Kato (@kasasagi.design) on Oct 29, 2017 at 8:14am PDT I've framed a few more bugs and they're ready to find new homes!!
