Green Man Bug Box
I wanted to create a product that not only looks appealing, but also benefits nature. I felt that sculptural bug boxes, in a variety of designs, would fulfil both criteria. 

How they work:

The boxes attract a variety of species. My favourite to watch are solitary masonry bees who enter the bamboo tubes, lay their eggs and then seal the tubes before leaving. Once the larvae have fully developed into bees they gnaw their way out of the tubes and fly off into the sunshine. Spiders tend to hang around all year as do woodlice, earwigs and other insects. 

All bug box designs are available in my esty shop: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ILexEcoArt

Green Man resin plaque
The green man (or woman in this case) is an ancient symbol that is often found in medieval church carvings but it's origins may pre-date this back to pagan religions. I've always liked the design and this is my variation of it! 

The piece has a pre drilled hole in the back for wall mounting on a screw. 

This gold piece has been hand painted so it is not advised that you hang it outside as the paint may tarnish. 

Dimensions (approximate): 13cm tall, 9.5cm wide, 4.5cm deep. 

Weight (approximate): 200g

I am a passionate conservationist and artist, ILex Eco Art is my way of combining these two obsessions into a single entity. My sculptures provide habitat and shelter for wildlife whilst also adding a bit of eye catching art to the garden. For myself, I find being able to bring a functional and living aspect to the works that I create immensely rewarding, each time a masonry bee moves in or a spider sets up a web I feel like it's a step in the right direction. My art can be bought on etsy : www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ILexEcoArt
