An army of 60000 bees built this giant honeycomb teapot - Inhabitat (blog)

To create the teapot shape, Libertíny constructed a metal scaffold that served as the framework for beehive before letting nature take over. The Thousand Years project took two takes to complete: the first attempt was unsuccessful due to a variety of factors including location and local weather conditions. the project was then moved to a less windy location near Rotterdam, where it was completed in August 2014. The success and beauty of the project is also a statement about the bee colony’s health and strength, as well as the quality of local flora. Related: These Amazing Honeycomb Sculptures Are Made by Bees. The Thousand Years project was inspired by Christofle’s collection as well as the themes on the passage of time and the power of nature found in the movie The Millennial Bee (1983) and Garcia Marques’ novel 100 Years of Solitude. “The ‘made by bees’ project allowed me to plug in to this source and guide it to create a mythology as well as a proposal. The title of the work ‘Thousand Years’ is not only reflecting the amazing materials properties— beeswax can literally last thousands of years—but also the scale of human life in the face of the apparent eternity of the universe.
