Pencils as art?

Pencil Flower

When I was younger, I once made a pencil can out of pencils and I thought I was pretty cool.  So maybe my talent was a little questionable, but artist Jennifer Maestre has indeed made of art from this unconventional medium.  Made of the ends of used pencils, not only has Maestre discovered something cool to do with material that would otherwise be discarded, but her work really is captivating.  Pictured here is just a small selection of here pieces.  See more at her website.
