Caudwell Children Charity Butterfly Ball 2018


Butterfly Ball for Caudwell Children charity took place on 15th June 2018. You could feel the joy and happiness when everyone got together to celebrate every children’s life, and raise money for this amazing charity that transforms the lives of disabled children across the UK. “We act as a safety net for
families who are unable to gain the help they need.”

I have been commissioned to create a piece specifically for the event to be donated at the Silent Auction. ‘The Butterfly Effect” was a stained glass installation.

“Each glass butterfly is individually hand crafted and decorated to form an installation. With delicately-cut stained glass pieces and hand-applied spikes in Raytchev’s signature style, this is an exquisite art piece with a powerful, relevant message. 

‘Butterfly Effect’ promotes ideals of inclusivity and empowerment, especially of minorities and those who experience discrimination. The butterflies are literally breaking through the glass ceiling and setting out in a golden spiral shape. ‘Butterfly Effect’ is inspired by Raytchev’s ‘Glass Ceiling’, a floating art chess installation commissioned for display at the World Chess Hall of Fame Museum in St. Louis, USA.”
