Sculptures Made From Honeycombs

“Aganetha Dyck begins by choosing a slightly broken object or damaged material from a second hand market place. Dyck always picks damaged objects because, according to her, ‘honeybees are meticulous beings, they continuously mend anything around them and they do pay attention to detail.’ To encourage the honeybees to communicate, Dyck strategically adds wax or honey, propolis or hand-made honeycomb patterns to the objects prior to placing them into their hives. After the bees start building honeycombs over the object, Dyck would coax them into specific shapes by adding or deleting wax.” w/ photos
