Hives on Camano

'Hive'     Barbara De Pirro

In celebration of the miraculous Bee....buzzzzzzz.

'Hive', Installed in a grand old Cedar tree at
Matzke Sculpture Park on Camano Island
Created using reclaimed plastic bottles,
stitched together with staples and stainless steel pins.

A detail shot that shows how 'Hive' is stitched together with staples.

Beauty Found in Decomposition

The fallen leaves are slowly decomposing, 
leaving behind holes that look like lacework.


The cycle of life....
the decaying leaves will fuel the forest with nutrients for new growth come next Spring.
