From Insects / vase

From Insects
From Insects

Coming from a family of beekeepers, I am interested in using insects as a co-partner in the design process, how their natural waste streams could be harnessed in the production of valuable craft artefacts in the future. Initially, I am interested in the common honey bee, which produces propolis, -a natural bio-degradable resin which is very similar to glass. I developed a lot of glass techniques with the bio resin and made a collection of vessels. From Insects is a celebration of the beauty in the use of insect material potentials.
