The Honey Fountain is a standing sculpture conceived with Monika Varšavskaja for Panal, an exhibition about beeswax in Lugar Usual Ciudad de México. Made of beeswaxed canvas, the brown column sustains a stainless steel plate filled with a honey potion, which human and insect visitors can drink from. Taking inspiration from the water containers that beekeepers prepare for their bees, a volcanic rock was placed in the center of the plate, allowing insects to stand on it without drowning.

Matter: Beeswax
Type: Furniture
Project: Honey fountain
