Mackenzie in the Garden With Bees
Material: glass tile
Size: 48″ x 24″
This large glass mosaic was inspired by my partner, by his bees, and by Makenzie.
Mack loved being in the garden with the bees. He would follow Wes around as he did the beekeeping chores. When Wes would sit and watch the bees, Mack would sit with him.
I make things because my demons won't give me any peace until I make something for us – mosaics, sculpture, drawings, books, stickers, furniture, tools...
I sell some of what I make, sometimes... when I can let go of it.
Often the work I sell is work created especially for a person. Commissions, pieces created as a collaboration between us, something that takes shape in our minds during a number of conversations, eventually making its way out into the physical world. Other times people just see something I've made and want to have it.
Books and stickers I just make, in large numbers. People buy them if they like them.
