Sophie Coryndon, Honeymoon, UK, 2016
Honeymoon, a cast bronze sphere with a honeycomb texture, is the first in a series based on eighteenth-century witch balls. Spinning like a disco mirror ball, Honeymoon is suspended and lit from within using LED lights. It rotates on a vertical axis, producing a pattern of lights when lit internally and reflecting its intricate texture when lit externally. 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. As the artist works on a commission basis, Honeymoon may be scaled up or down and patinated in any combination of metal colors. Exhibited on its own or in a group, Honeymoon is a mesmerizing work.
As Coryndon works on a commission basis, custom works may be requested.
