This wire Fat Bee is one I made in a series of experiments I did in college for my graduation show.
I had been working with themes using insects for some time. He is now rusted and a little battered but he was definitely the start of an on-going love affair with these little creatures.
I created his barrel body by using weaving techniques and I messed around with getting a boiled down, playful bee silhouette.
I still have him hanging in my house as a reminder of my works humble beginnings and how big ideas can stem from simple origins.
