Organic Architectures

This sculpture is based off of my interview with Eddie Bernard, glass artist and kiln builder (see previous post). After our interview, I kept thinking about the references and silmilarities we drew to the bees hive and termite nests he found in the house he is rebuilding.

The format is a reference to the beeshive that was between two studs in the wall. The format is also based on castings of the insides of ant nests, an instinctual and organic architecture. I took elements from photographs of the building and reconstructed them as a model of a 'nest.'
