Jennifer Maestre Master of the Pencil Sculpture

Jennifer Maestre is a very talented lady - and she must be a very patient one as well.  She spends all of her time making sculptures out of pencils.  These writing implements are difficult enough to handle at the best of the times (specially if you are semi-literate like us!) but what she does with them is something else entirely.

How long each one of these takes is anyone's guess but the end product transforms the humble pencil (or rather hundreds of them) in to something else entirely.  We are not sure whether you should try this at home though - tears before bedtime can be a little upsetting for everyone!

Stunning art. I couldn't do this. I wouldn't have the patience.
