This is simply for visual pleasure: the feminine form lovingly carved and molded into the natural curves of driftwood, as if they have always been there.
Created by Debra Bernier, an extraordinary artist from Canada, these sculptures dance that magical line between real life and make believe. All of her pieces draw on the natural world with use of found materials – wood, shells and clay – to create these stunning pieces.
“When I work with driftwood, I never start with a blank canvas. Each piece of driftwood is already a sculpture, created by the caresses of the waves and wind” Debra told Bored Panda. “The wood tells a story and I try to think of its journey as I hold it in my hand. I extend or shorten the curves and contours that already exist into familiar shapes of animals or peoples’ faces.”
