Stunning sculptures using colouring pencils
American sculptor Jen Maestre created a series of sculptures made entirely from coloured pencils. These sculptures are inspired in sea creature’s and can take up to 2 months to make. Make sure to visit her website atwww.jennifermaestre.com/ to see more stunning sculptures.
Some words from the american sculptor abou her work:
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.
I’m inspired by animals, plants, other art, Ernst Haeckel, Odilon Redon, mythology. In fact, it isn’t easy to specify particular sources of inspiration. Sometimes one sculpture will inspire the next, or maybe I’ll make a mistake, and that will send me off in a new direction.
