Nectary: Dreamers of Bee Space
2012
Elm, propolis, beeswax
74"l x 15"dia
The log-like form references early hive structures and is conceived through dreaming of the thinkers/inventors of bee space (hive designs). The interior is 'guilded' with thin sheets of beeswax and the grooves of the exteriors are inlaid with burnished propolis (scented plant resins collected by honeybees). The work on the wall (Nectary) is intended to be integral and functions as a simple grid/garden.
