The Hoard Series masterfully explores the exquisite nature of honeycombs using cast bronze, gilded plaster, and precious and semi-precious stones. Though bronze is usually regarded as a robust medium, the material assumes a jewelry-like delicacy in Coryndon’s hands. Coryndon became interested in bees after learning about the current global crisis facing the insects. In an effort to capture abandoned “ghost ship hives,” Coryndon employs the lost-wax method, an ancient and labor-intensive technique.
Coryndon’s work, inspired by elements of the natural world, is rooted in historical aesthetics. Coryndon especially draws inspiration from the influential Omega Workshops, continuing their quiet revolution aimed to remove the divisions between the decorative and fine arts. Imaginative and innovative, Coryndon has forged a successful career of combining traditional craft skills and specialist finishing techniques in a fine art realm. She has found a large audience with collectors and designers internationally.
