Oh my god! Those are absolutely beautiful. Amazing. I would never have thought they were pencils! How does one even come up with an idea like that??

Absolutely Brilliant, Judy! These are true works of "art"....I love these! I am always fascinated by what people create with the simplist of objects...This is perfect! Do you know the Artists name by any chance?

WOW quite amazing! Those pencil sculptures must have taken hours and hours to do! And the question remains.... WHY???

Those are AMAZING! Absolutely STUNNING. I had to show them to my daughter and she was all "Whoa!". Who is the artist and are there more pics anyplace. I wonder how much those sculptures cost. Totally awe inspiring. Thanks for posting them.

Here via Michele, but I come every day anyhow.

Anna said...

These are fabulous! I am going to show the kids while we are homeschooling in the morning! They will love it too!

Karen said...

These are fascinating as were the trees! I don't get around here every day, and was I ever surprised to find you've moved. Really like your new blog and love the concept about what you and any of us leave out.

Alan G said...

Thanks for sharing....what creativity. My first thoughts is that those should be displayed in an arts museum. Of course after visiting your link I find a response to that thought.

Blitz Krieg said...

I love pencils. I never use pens except for legal documents. I think this is from my civil engineering/mathematics backgound. I prefer the natural versus the mechanical and have a power sharpener on both my desk at work and home.

Crimson said...

LOVE your new home, judy!! Awesome pictures.

Wordnerd said...

Amazing!

Am I the only person who wants to sniff them? I've got a thing about newly sharpened pencils.

That sounded way weirder than I wanted it to...

Bob-kat said...

Wow, that's incredible! I love how they look 'prickly'. some look like some weird little spiny animals!

Sonia said...

Judy, well done! Your blog each day surprise me! Just amazing this sculpture with pencils! What a creativity! Love it! Like Naomi, I would love to know the artist's name, too.

I love the colours. Those gorgeous russets are just what one needs on another dreary wet day. I swear that if we had the flood and Noah's ark parts of Britain would still have a hose pope ban.

trinamick said...

Very cool. I can't even make anything interesting when I'm using them for their intended purpose.

rosemary said...

Pencils....who would have thought they could be so creative without using their lead! I am fascinated with people that fold paper and make those lacy cut outs....I am so craft challenged!

Duke_of_Earle said...

Uh... I still use them to WRITE with. Super creativity there!

Hula Doula said...
