A whole new meaning to pencil art...

Jennifer Maestre  is a Massachusetts-based artist, internationally known for her unique pencil sculptures. Jennifer has to sharpen each individual pencil to create these designs. She then drills a hole through each one of the 1,000 pencils it takes to create her pieces, before she sets about sharpening each and every one of them to craft the spectacular models. 

Once this is done, each section is then sewn together using a technique called a peyote stitch, which helps to give the structure its shape.
