Hoard III, like its predecessors Hoard and Hoard II, 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,” Corydon 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 Bloomsbury group, continuing their quiet revolution against tradition in favor of natural sustainability. 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.
