I feel honored to feature these mind-blowing pencil sculptures onto my blog and more than that the very existence of such creative artist has touched my heart. It’s now being years that Jennifer Maester is neck-deep busy in giving shape to her art via sculptures. I am using mostly pencils. The sculptures are being designed after drilling holes in one-inch long sections of pencils, and stitching them together using a sculptural beading technique known as ‘peyote’ stitch. The great source behind her artistic creation was Ernst Haeckle’s work. Why only pencils? It is because it interests her and she use to make use of pencils down to the tiniest nub, and save the nubs.
