Chisel Away

Diem Chau. Wow.

Here's a little something different. As self-proclaimed doodlers, we have all grown up coloring with crayons. Well, you can forget all about that. Diem Chau takes her crayons and carves the most intricate and delicate figures out of them. Patience and an astute attention to detail have got to be some of her fortes. Take a look at more of her work, right after you pick up your jaw off the table.

Indeed, all of her work is impressive.

These are wonderful. They remind me of the carved and painted crochet hooks my mom has. These crayon carvings are really quite expressive and fun!
