My glass bees at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Huge congratulations to Theresa Wedderburn & the team at Branch-out MK CIC who won a Silver medal at the prestigious RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Chelsea Flower Show for their floral display, 'Just how do bees see'.
The display explores how bees are believed to see the world, in ultraviolet light. I was asked to design & create some bespoke glass bees to be part of her display. If you look closely at the photograph, you will be able to see my bees.
