Incredible: Tiny Sculptures Carved from Crayons

When you think of Crayons, what usually comes to mind? Probably something along the lines of Kindergarten and coloring books right? Well not for the talented Vietnam-born artist Diem Chau. For Chau, a Crayon is not used to color, but is just the start of some of the most amazing detailed carvings and sculptures.

“Chau combines common mediums and common means to create delicate vignettes of fleeting memory, gesture and form, resulting in works that combine egalitarian sensibility and minimalist restraint. Her work touches on the value of Storytelling, Myths and its ability to connect us to each other through cultural and humanistic similarities. Chau’s current work drifts into new territory by exploring the periphery of the narrative, moments forgotten and faded, or too brief to retain.”
