Not Just Pushing Pencils

 These incredible Pencil Sculptures are from Artist  Jennifer Maestre. Jennifer has taken the "common object" the pencil and turned them in to incredible "structures". This incredible art came from the inspiration of "Sea Urchins", with their beautiful appearance and the paradox of how they are not to be touched due to the dangerous outcome. 
Ms. Maestre has studied art all over the US, and you can even find her work available in her Etsy Store.She also creates incredible  beads from pencils. I love how Jennifer Followed her muse to find her own style and material to work with. You can read much more at her website.
