Bees in glass

September 2015, Northlands Creative Glass. My take on the plight of the bee. Dead bees were cast in glass, and a copper model of a bee was included in the cast that represents a block of ice.

North lands Creative Glass 2015



Lybster, Caithness in Scotland September 2015 at Angela Thwaties master class in glass.
 My aim was to make few pieces of glass art on the theme of the plight of bees and the state of the planet (grand ideas).
Images show a copper model of a bee as if frozen in ice; figures cast from a spinal fragment washed up on the beach in conversation with human heads made in clear glass.
