Beautiful Decay is right when they point out that artist Aganetha Dyck doesn't necessarily create her own works of art, she essentially facilitates the process of art. Working in joint effort with endangered species number one, or so it feels, Aganetha Dyck's collection of vintage porcelain figurines has been covered in a sticky honeycomb surface.

Hailing from Canada with a strong interest in environmental issues, Aganetha Dyck works with sculptures that are broken or damaged in some way. Working with beekeepers, the honeybees enhance what would have been discarded with their own unique patterns. Aganetha Dyck reveals, "I choose damaged objects because honeybees are meticulous beings, they continuously mend anything around them and they do pay attention to detail." She encourages the process with wax and honey.
