Taking something ordinary and using it to make something extraordinary is a talent not a lot of people posses. Diem Chau, a Vietnam native shows her work and how it can be done.
Meet Diem Chau – An Artist who uses a whole new world of creativity.
Her most popular source for her amazing sculptures… crayons.
She carves them into letters and animals that begin with the letter.
This is a skill that requires some serious patience.
As you can see, each carving has extreme attention to detail.
According to her website ” Her work touches on the value of Storytelling”
And “drifts into new territory by exploring the periphery of the narrative, moments forgotten and faded, or too brief to retain.”
She is a Vietnam Native but moved to the United States in 1986.
Her work has been seen in exhibits in NY, California, Washington, Florida, and many other places.
The detail is unlike anything I have ever seen.
It requires a lot of creativity.
But if you think the crayons were amazing, look at these.
Beautiful sculptures carved into the tip of a pencil.
What a unique talent
