About the Artist
Jennifer Maestre attended the Massachusetts College of Art where she graduated with a BFA. Her sculptures are inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. To make the sculptures, hundreds of pencils are chosen by color, cut into 1-inch sections, holes are drilled in each one (turning them into beads), then sharpened and sewn together. Jen’s sculptures are exhibited internationally. She lives and works in Maynard, Massachusetts.
