My long-time friend Melanie Chikofsky, Managing Director and Instructor at the Al Green Sculpture Studio School  recently worked with Penelope Stewart, assisting her with mold-making to realize her sculptural project Daphne, 'a new sensory architecture' created for the exhibit Swarm: A Collaboration with Bees at Ganna Walska Lotusland, Santa Barbara, CA.  'Stewart has transformed a room at the gallery lining it entirely with beeswax tiles from floor to ceiling'.  Quotes are from exhibit description.  Check out the links for more photos and info.
