Sculptor Ellen Jewett was raised among snails in Ontario, and now creates these absurdly intricate sculptures of her version of nature for her shop, Creatures From El.
To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life, biological narratives and cultural statements. She considers her work equally an expression of art and academic curiosity into the lives of animals and human-animal cultural relationships. The tedious hours of labor act as the mysterious foundation from which each sculptures’ personality springs forth.
Please take the time to click through Ellen’s sold items, there are a wealth of beautiful pieces that have already found their new homes in the world.
