71 by Bronwen Bradshaw, companion to 71bee, Coelioxys rufescens, the Rufescent Sharp-tail Bee

90 GBP

I got to know my bee through a ceramics project: to make and decorate 5 plates using different techniques and clays, depicting different habitats/feeding plants. The slip-trailed decoration I used on this earthenware plate is in the 17th & 18th century English country pottery tradition, where I hope my bee feels at home.

The bee is tiny – 15 mm long - so I made it small (but not so small) in relation to the rest of the plate.
