Jennifer Maestre creates stunning sculptures out of pencils. Yes, you read right: pencils!
Her work is hard to describe and difficult to compare with anything else that I’ve seen before.
She was originally inspired by the form and function of sea urchins:
“The spines of the urchin, so dangerous yet beautiful, serve as an explicit warning against contact. The alluring texture of the spines draws the touch in spite of the possible consequences.”
