honey bee

This was commissioned for a bee keeper. The abdomen and thorax are made of 10 individual rings, each having from 9 to 12 caps (Pacifico and Bold Rock Hard Cider). The head is the first totally enclosed spherical object we have made. The three sections are held together by a threaded rod. The wings are made of crimped together Old Dominion Brewing caps and fastened to the abdomen. The leg sections (Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery) are also crimped together and bolted to the body. There are 259 caps in all.
