Artist Skye Bergen captures little moments in time by collecting and preserving her favorite bits of nature in clear resin. She collected this empty wasp from her backyard garden and dipped it multiple times in clear epoxy resin. Wasps are important pollinators for flowering plants, and Skye appreciates the masterful design work of their nests, albeit from a safe distance. She fashioned copper wire into a bail and then dipped the wasp nest into resin a second time to secure the bail to the pod.
