What is your medium for making art work?

We all know artists are creative. They are making beautiful art from paints, clay, paper, fabric, glass, tile, music.. etc.. etc.. As a kid I have had a good share of trying my hand at different things too. I remember using color pencils, paints, paper, coins. Then later started working with paper mache, and then baking. I made cakes, desserts for a while and still do when I get the time. Now however my focus is all in clay, but all my influences from other mediums do play some part in my current work.

I still get very fascinated when I look at art work that is made of something I had not even thought of. I have seen sculptures made of bottle caps, art work made of beer bottles.... Recently I came across the beautiful work of Jennifer Maestre who makes these extra ordinary sculptures from Pencil Points. I have always had a soft spot for stationary but looking at her work just blew me away. You can see that each piece for work requires a lot of patience. Her use of color is remarkable. She also has an etsy shop where she sells pendants made of pencils. http://jenmaestre.etsy.com/

So all you artists, keep creating and do share what extra ordinary work have you done or seen with a medium you least expect.
