WHY BEE CAUSE...WHY? Without pollination there is no food. BEES are among the most important pollinators. Our CAUSE is to insure that our Native Bees thrive.

A Steel Flower Mason Bee Nesting Sculpture
I am an artist who lives and creates in Fearrington Village, North Carolina. My BeeYouTeeFull steel sculptural Mason Bee nesting unit was featured in the 2016 Sculpture in the Garden exhibit at the North Carolina Botanical Garden.
I used an oxyacetylene cutting torch to create petals and leaves.I cut segments of the stem from rebar. The pieces were connected using arc welding equipment.
The piece was coated with a bronze metal coating and colors applied using acid stains.
