Colony Life

This series tells stories about gender equality; women face a persistent gap in access to opportunities in most aspects of life. The fate of female bees inspires this series of ceramics. Worker bees are all female. The queen bee is the only female bee in the hive that gets to reproduce. The male bee's only job is to spread the genes of their colony. They leave the territory every day in search of potential new queens looking to mate.
