The Hive #2 by Laurie Boyer
Wool, bamboo, photo on foamcore
21" x 39"
"Locally grown sheep's wool (brown East Friesian x Polypay, white Navajo-Churro) was sheared, scoured, carded then handspun into my own rendition of lock yarn, then crocheted into The Hive #2. The bumble bee photo was taken in my small butterfly garden. I rarely see honey bees any more so these must be fulfilling the pollinating niche. Bumble bees are mostly solitary ground-dwelling species, but I couldn't resist placing this one in a big shaggy hive."
