Working Studio & Gallery
Welcome to Bee Global, a working studio and gallery offering distinctive, handcrafted beeswax creations. Since 1996, we have combined the finest natural beeswax with excellent craftsmanship to produce Bee Glow™️ lanterns, award winning ornaments, pillar candles and electric lamps. Our intention is to offer authentic, quality products that reflect the innate beauty of nature's creativity and attention to detail.
From our perspective, beeswax, in a simple way, is the perfect medium. The honeybees produce a wax with important practical characteristics like structural integrity and high melting point, in addition to aesthetic properties like brilliant luminosity and soothing aroma. Beeswax embodies the essence of nature, natural; sun, rain, seed, flower, nectar, honey, wax. Honeybees, through hard work and diligence to task, pull the thread of continuity, connecting the individual to the whole.
Our work, in an expression of gratitude, is a small extension of that thread, connecting hand, sun, rain, seed, flower, wax, light. Our hands plant and press flowers, pour pillars, shape lanterns, finish lamps. Through the synergistic combination of materials, creativity, hard work and attention to detail, we have created a unique line of products that share the wonderful experience of beeswax. Thanks for coming. Enjoy the Glow!
Save the Bees.
Lots of thoughts come to mind when searching for the words to express 20 years with Bee Global Studio. With respect to nostalgia and the narrative of our journey, the first thought is gratitude for the opportunity to cultivate a creative life. Thanks, with our deepest appreciation, to the community of family, friends, and customers who have supported us along our path. One of the most profound aspects to the studio experience has been the constant reminder that we are both a teacher and a student.
Children are the greatest mirrors of this truth. With two teenagers, any discussion of technology renders us the parents, in short order, to the role of grasshopper. Especially when it concerns an outdated website that is deconstructed with a brutal critique revealing real cyber concerns. They encouraged (demanded) us to keep moving forward, to evolve into a new perspective. We chose to listen, to be like a honeybee and understand the importance of collective wisdom. In year 20, we introduce Version 2.0.
