Description

Illuminate

Books illuminate the mind so I took that literally in creating this piece. It’s a sweet thing!

I did some mark making by scratching into the orange encaustic. Note the words “not legible” at the end of the marks.

The back has the mark making as well and the little bitty light bulb. I only wish the light actually turned on.

All books in this series are first steeped in beeswax to permeate the layers and encapsulate in wax. I believe this helps in the preservation. This piece is free standing and a hand made metal base.
