The Mystery in Making

This is a playful work created to test a new press at the shop. There is a deep mystery to the bee hive. It is closely guarded and secret to the eyes of outsiders. I believe the hive can be a metaphor for the mind of the artist, or indeed any maker. We appreciate the fruits of their labor; but often have little insight into the labor that goes into the work of a craftsman. The challenges and trials that go into the creation of something beautiful remain wrapped up in the mind of the artist, locked away in secret places like honey in its cell.
