Incredible Implements

South Carolina-based artist Jessica Drenk finds new ways to look at everyday objects. Her “Implements” series of nature-inspired sculptures consist of hundreds of ordinary pencils glued together. In her own words, Drenk says “By transforming familiar objects into nature-inspired forms and patterns, I examine how we classify the world around us. Manufactured goods appear as natural objects, something functional becomes something decorative, a simple material is complex, and the commonplace becomes unique.”
