The idea of creating the collection Beehive Structures came from the author’s family’s beekeeping traditions. As a person who grew up around bees, she wanted to honour and give her respect to the amazing life which happens around us. She aims to pay attention to sophisticated shapes and structures within hives. It’s unbelievable how bees are organized and how good they are in creating the whole shape of the hive. She came to realize how unaware people have become of the harm they inflict on their surrounding nature. Therefore, what she would like to do in the future is to research human habits. For example, their approach to waste and nature still seems to constitute a great way of escape from everyday life to find inner calmness.
