Nature-Inspired Sculptures Made With Pencils



South Carolina-based artist Jessica Drenk creates impressive nature-inspired sculptures using hundreds of pencils that have been tightly glued together.

Using an electric sander, she molds the pencils to create forms inspired by nature—such as cave formations and underwater crevices.

“By transforming familiar objects into nature-inspired forms and patterns, I examine how we classify the world around us,” said Drenk. “Manufactured goods appear as natural objects, something functional becomes something decorative, a simple material is complex, and the commonplace becomes unique.”
