Natural history art

What if you combined plants and animals and modern techniques to create amazing works of art?  What if you could see the world in a different light?  That is exactly what artis Ellen Jewett is doing with her sculptures.  She is combining the natural world, with our historical world into breath taking sculptures.

So what do you think of Ellen's sculptures?  Can you see what she is making them from?  What animal would you create and what materials would you use to create it?  Is there one that you would love to see if person?  Why do you like that one?

  1. They cool, Their animals and then they branch off into other parts of nature. I would make a cheetah wood.

  2. I think this is very cool because they take random things and make it into art. I like the turtle the most because there is a lot of things happening. My favorite part about this picture is the tree is growing from its shell.

  4. I really like what the artist was trying to get at in this project. I like how the artist used their creative against some of aspects of nature and it's animals. I think that some of the sculptures are not my personal favorite, like the turtle. Otherwise I really like this art piece, especially the fox and wolves.

  6. These are very cool sculptures. My favorite one is the turtle. I like how it turns from a animal to nature like trees. This seems very hard to do though.

  10. This looks very hard and i don't think i could ever do anything like this so its very cool to see somebody else to it. I personally like the octopus the best because of the details.

  11. It looks the sculpture is made of plant stuff, which fits well with the fact the sculpture themselves are animals so it sort of mixes plant and animal.
