Recent Sculpture: Bee Brood Chambers

My “brood chamber” series, constructed from layers of fragile organic material, beeswax and encaustic, symbolize the conflict I see taking place between nature and civilization and my concern for our fragile environment. Specifically, the brood chambers serve as memento mori for the world-wide honey bee “colony collapse syndrome, that threatens our food supply.

  1. Hi Susanne, so nice to see your works. Love how you combine natural materials. I particularly love your figures made out of wood branches and the use of the rusted metal, and in your most recent works, love how you incorporate petals, so delicate by themselves and yet they look strong enough to hold the shape... Thanks for sharing!
