Sea urchins inspire pencil-tip sculptures

Sculptor Jen Maestre's super-cool sculptures reportedly were initially inspired by sea urchins. The artist takes colored pencis, saws the sharpened tips off, and drills a hole through each one individually so they can be stitched together. Talk about dangerous art!

Run you 3-5 thousand USD, according to the article. If you are seriously interesting in purchasing a piece I suggest you contact the artist directly. :)
i really want one, but i hope he can do special odders, because i want one custom made ( A sculpture of my dogs). I am willing to pay 5 k for it.

If you can't think of something better to do with your 7 grand, then yes.

I really love it but i think 7 grand is too much for a simple art.

Well in that case, tell her that 5 grand (or whatever price is your maximum) is all you care to spend, and she can accept it or not. You're the one with the money here, so you're in control.
