Offered as a Bee. Dana Bechert's Unlikely Patterned Prairie

"My way in the garden is similar to that of my ceramics practice.
Things are unpredictable and fragile with most of the results
stemming from forces outide myself. The landscape is laid out in a vibrant all over pattern; everything is planted everywhere.
As a beekeeper and cultivator I try not to place privilege on the species that provide for us, and instead gladly host any and all who find themselves wanting to share the refuge and abundance of the garden." *

Dana Bechert is a designer and a ceramist living in Baltimore. As a cultivator, a beekeeper and an artist she enjoys working with chances and "forces outside herself" to create balance through "chaos and variation". 

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee -

One clover and a bee

And revery.

The revery alone will do

If bees are few.

Emily Dickinson
