Bees are natural builders, but as designers they're a little boring. Honeycombs have been mimicked in industrial design and architecture, but in its natural state, beehives all look the same when the bees are left to their own devices. Aganetha Dyck decided to make the bugs work for her, manipulating where they formed their cells on various porcelain statues and other objects. The results are the intricate pieces above that resemble high-fashion designs with head pieces and crazy gowns.
