Hilary Berseth

With the help of many, many bees, these amazing beeswax sculptures were created by Hilary Berseth. To get the bees to build their combs in the shapes he would like, he constructs basic frameworks out of wire and wax, and then puts them into a closed box in the spring. After that the bee colonies take over, filling out his templates with wax cells, then stuffing them with honey. Check out NY Magazine for more information.
