Geode Inspired Beeswax Sculptures by Laura Moriarty

New York based Laura Moriarty calls herself a geologically inspired visual artist. She works with highly colored molten beeswax. She melts them into beautiful geode-like sculptures. There are not only distinct rings of every hue but the centers of her art work are also visually captivating.  Her art process seem to reflect geological processes like erosion and weathering. 

She explained, “Layers of color form the strata of a methodology in which the immediacy of the hand can translate a sense of deep time.”  You can see more of her work on Artspace and on her Instagram.
