Honey Bee Altered Figurines by Aganetha Dyck

The work of Canada based artist Aganetha Dyck has a certain grace and fluidity achieved with some help.  Dyck utilizes bees and their hive building skills to enhance common ceramic figurines.  Naturally, as well as with some final refinement from Dyck, the bees seem to transform severe edges into smooth curves as they build.  Additionally, the bees gently fill in empty spaces with the wax slowly changing the shape of each figurine.  The result is an entirely new and different work of art created from existing objects and a peculiar collaboration. See more of Aganetha Dyck's sculptures after the jump.
