Bee Kingdom, the glass-based studio collective we profiled in issue #17, is about to open a new exhibition titled Gold. 

From the Bees: 

“Glass has a lot in common with gold; thin gold foil can be rolled into the glass, certain glass colours become gold-like or chrome under flame and red/ruby glass is made in part by melting solid gold into a tank of liquid glass.”

The exhibition opens in Calgary on March 7th.
