Pencil Sculptures Jennifer Maestre


Inspired by the form of sea urchins, a Massachusetts-based artist Jennifer Maestre  is creating these breathtaking pencil sculptures, she describes them as ” dangerous and beautiful”. Jennifer makes use of a variety pencils, nails and stitching. She takes hundreds of pencils, cuts them into small 1-inch sections, drills a hole in each section, sharpens them all and then drills a hole through each one of the 1,000 pencils it takes to create her pieces, before she sets about sharpening each and every one of them to craft the spectacular models.

Once this is done, each section is then sewn together using a technique called a peyote stitch, which helps to give the structure its shape.
