Copper Honeybee Sculpture

The bee is shell formed and tig welded, then filled with pitch and textured. the antenna and legs are silver soldered. The wings and honey are cast polyester resin. the body segments come apart and the bee is attached to the honeycomb by a threaded rod brazed to the abdomen. It can hang flat on a wall but looks nice if its floating off a little bit so light can shine through. The honeycomb is about 30 inches wide.

Thanks! The honeycomb is 16 gauge copper sheet. I folded up the individual hexagons and then welded them along their top edges

That's a wonderful concept

That's a wonderful concept and the detail on the bee is amazing. I wonder what this would look hung in front of a clear glass door. Great work there.

I love it. My husband and I

I love it. My husband and I are beekeepers so I totally appreciate a piece like this. It is hard to find bee art where the bee actually looks nice. You did a great job and it would be something that I would buy for myself or as a gift! In fact, I found it because I am looking for a metal bee that I could hang on the outside of my house and I am not having any luck.
