Cherry wood, propolis
64"l x 3"d
The simple handrail form is intended to be an interactive work through the presentation of an inlaid/burnished strip of propolis along its length. When activated through rubbing, propolis releases its scent of the various plant resins contained within. Propolis is a gum-like substance collected by honey bees, used as both sealant and to prevent bacterial growth.
