Jennifer Maestre’s Pencil Sculptures

Jennifer Maestre is an artist creating stunning pencil sculptures dedicated to sea urchins. She takes hundreds of pencils, cut them into 1-inch sections, drill a hole in each section (to turn them into beads), sharpen them all and sew them together. The beading technique she relies on most is peyote stitch.

From Maestre: “I’m inspired by animals, plants, other art, Ernst Haeckel, Odilon Redon, mythology. In fact, it isn’t easy to specify particular sources of inspiration. Sometimes one sculpture will inspire the next, or maybe I’ll make a mistake, and that will send me off in a new direction.”
