“Gelée Royale” (2017), Wood and glass, 16 x 11 x 15 inches
Costa Rica-based artist Valérie Rey combines fallen segments of branches and logs with glass beads to bring a luminous new life to found natural forms. Innumerable glass baubles in colors of orange, gold, green, and black either completely encrust the found material or are sprinkled over its exterior, imitating a natural appearance similar to a cracked geode. You can see more of her nature-inspired sculptures on her website and Instagram .
