Description

Fitted

In nature, beeswax functions as a structural vessel: the honeycomb. Similarly, I use beeswax to investigate the structural container of the figure in which I embed with a myriad of random, brittle, quirky thoughts – one’s inner dialogue.

These figures are multiple castings from an original clay sculpture from which a rubber mold was created. Plied with or cast with found objects and materials, carved into, melted with a blow torch, even recast.
