Etsy Find: Pencil Nub Sculptures by Jennifer Maestre

The humble pencil typically plays a behind-the-scenes (albeit vital) role in the creative process, but artist Jennifer Maestre brings it center stage by turning sharpened pencil nubs into beautiful and sometimes threatening sculptures. She even offers smaller, affordable versions of her elaborate works in her Etsy shop.

Maestre creates the pieces by drilling holes in the nubs and literally sewing them together. We think the mini "urchins" available in her Etsy shop would make a very cool office or craft room desk accessory.
