Sculptural objets made with insects waste

Marlène Huissoud was born in a family of beekeepers and that’s why she always had this idea of creating artifacts with insects waste.

Inspired by the viability of creating a symbiotic relationship between humans and insects, Huissoud looked at two insects in particular – the honeybee and the Indian silkworm.

The honeybee collects propolis taht is a resinous mixture gathered from sap. The honeybee uses propolis to seal their hive, so Houissad used it to create a collection of glass-like objects using a variety of glass manipulation techniques. The result was mysterious black objects with unexpected textures. Inspired by the viability of creating a symbiotic relationship between humans and insects, Huissoud looked at two insects in particular – the honeybee and the Indian silkworm.

Indian silkworms create a hard cocoon that is discarded when they reach maturity. Composed of raw silk, Houissad extracted the individual silk fibers that includes a natural glue called Sericin.By activating the glue through heating the fibers and adding water, it creates a strong, paper-like material. Houissad further varnishes the paper with propolis, creating a wooden, leather-like material that can be used for a variety of designs – including furniture or even clothing.
