Sanded Sculptures Made From Hundreds Of Pencils

 

Jessica Drenk is an artist currently living and working in South Carolina.  I’m fascinated by her series of inherent sculptures made of the ‘old school’ HB pencils we can all remember using in elementary school days.  For me, I enjoy these for nostalgia sake and also how she can create such organic, free-flowing shapes from such a rigid, preconceived mundane tool that we can all relate using to write our abc’s with.  (via)

They were inspired by the texture of the sea urchin, which she has been exploring in many materials for several years.
