Wild Hive (90) - Leigh Shepherd
A beautiful, unique mixed media piece created from a vintage weaving shuttle. This is one of the largest shuttles I have worked with, it measures 50cm long, 5.5cm wide and 6cm deep. The wood has a beautiful aged patina.
I stitched the little honey bees from thread, felt and wire. The honeycomb is made from paper and filled with honey coloured resin.
The piece is signed on the back, there is a small ring so that it can be hung on the wall if you wish.
