Frequently asked questions about steamdragonfly

I am always interested in fulfilling a persons wishes. If you like my work and have a found item or photo that you would like to see turned into a piece like the ones I make please contact me and we will work together.
I give a detailed description of the size of each object for space purposes of displaying.
Most of my objects are made of metals, wood, natural objects, strong adhesives, clay and glass. With careful attention they are made to last a very long time because of the durability of them. Carefully dust the objects as to not snap off parts. The metal objects with copper will slowly have a patina develop. This is part of their charm. Aging, is part of the process of my art.
Your item will arrive securely boxed and well packaged. I wrap each one individually and they should arrive to you beautiful in every way. If you would like special gift wrapping for an occasion let me know and I can add that on as a nominal fee.
I do not do wholesale at this time. Sorry.
Yes, the insects, eggs, wood pieces and such will eventually decay over a very, very long time. Objects made by the Victorians are still available to us so I believe with care mine will last just as long.
