Bumble Bee Cuff

Bumble Bee Cuff


This fairly deep relief bumble bee is a single piece of 18ga copper. I wanted to include more insects into my work and carry them with me and I love chubby little bumble bees just living their little bumble lives. This was a drawing I did on the plane coming home from my last workshop this year, and California was still on fire so bad you couldn’t see anything from the plane but the occasional flames. A flying symbol struggling for life in a halo of smoke. Not every idea has layers of meaning and I’m not trying to sound deep, but sometimes you can’t escape the smoke no matter where you go.
