Amazing Pencil Sculptures by Jennifer Maestre
Meet Jennifer Maestre, a South African-born, Massachusetts-based artist, who makes the most beautiful and unusual sculptures we’ve ever seen.
My sculptures were originally inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. To make the pencil sculptures, I take hundreds of pencils, cut them into 1-inch sections, drill a hole in each section (to turn them into beads), sharpen them all and sew them together. The beading technique I rely on most is peyote stitch.
