No. 3 is a pewter pendant cast from a coloured pencil.
This wearable pewter sculpture is a part of a group of works of art about art, made from art materials. These pieces celebrate the tools and materials that artists love and are drawn to,
As a sculptor, I tend to see these pieces as small, wearable sculptures rather than strictly jewellery.
I’ve been saving spent art materials for a few years, with a view to making art from the empties; this kind of self-reflexive “art about art” isn’t an exclusive in-joke, but it’s a feel-good celebration of the tools and materials that artists and makers are drawn to and rely on to express themselves.
Pewter with wire.
The pewter pencil sculptures are cast from real pencils and coloured pencils from my personal store. This coloured pencil, cast in pewter, makes an elegant pendant that’s comfortable to wear. This series is the result of trying to find the perfect gift for an artist or art lover, combined with my own love of art materials and desire to repurpose as much waste material as possible.
8 cm long, 0.8 cm wide, 0.8 cm deep.
