#088 Wild Hive
This' Wild Hive' mixed media piece is made from a section of a typecase / printer's tray. This is one of the largest pieces I have made, its filled with over 300 honeycomb cells! These are made from folded paper, each cell is painted and filled with honey coloured resin. I have built the honeycomb to give a tactile, undulating effect.
The tray has a beautiful pull handle and the wood has a lovely aged patina.
I have stitched the little bees from felt, thread and wire.
This piece is signed and numbered on the back.
It measures: 36cm high, 22cm wide, 5.5cm deep (at the deepest point. There is a small triangular ring on the back so that it can be hung on the wall.
