Charming Crayon Sculptures of the Alphabet and Accompanying Imagery

Crayon carving extraordinaire Diem Chau has just completed a new set of work that’s as charming as can be. The ABC’s (and accompanying imagery) have been carved into the tops of Crayola crayons. As she states, “Maybe it’s the Fontophile in me, but I find an extreme satisfaction in seeing a well made set of ABC’s.”

For those interested in seeing the whole series (wonder what Z could be!), Chau will showing all 26 sets, as well as new carved pencils, in an upcoming show. It starts April 6 at Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago. Whimsical and lovely.

A is for Aardvark
