Ava Roth

Ava Roth has been working with bees to produce artworks that use embroidery, beading, porcupine quills and wax to highlight the beauty of the natural world and the threats facing that world. 

The Canadian artist has been working on pieces that use the wax production of bee colonies to create frames. Ava then embroiders and beads through the wax and frames to create artworks of delicacy and beauty. 

You can see some of the works here on thisiscolossal.com and more of the artist's pieces, including Encaustic Sewing, here on her own website.
