I really want everyone to know about Ellen Jewett. She’s a super talented sculptor from Ontario, Canada who makes custom handmade works of art. I found her shop, creaturesfromel, on Etsy and her work is just amazing.
Underneath the shop policies, the shop welcomes viewers and says the following:
"Each sculpture is an attempt to incorporate an understanding of animal physiology with a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd. Each creature is handmade and painted. Most pieces are created with complete spontaneity and find their own forms as they are sculpted. Within each piece Ellen is working towards a level of high craftsmanship and detail, seeking to create narratives which can be experienced by the viewer over time."
Depending on the time and care she spends on a piece, the prices for her sculptures can range from $275 to $2,955 or higher.
