Pencil Art by Jennifer Maestre

Jennifer Maestre is a legend. These are amazing!!!
I have taken a few sections from her Artist Statment:
'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.'
