Ellen Jewett’s Surrealist Animal Sculptures

Ellen Jewett is a Canadian sculpture artist who makes intricate, fantastical animal sculptures. From owls that look like they came straight out of Harry Potter, to steam-punk-inspired octopuses, there’s no limit to Jewett’s imagination. Her pieces are stunningly detailed and all have a sense of narrative about them, rather it’s a fairy tale or just a realistic glimpse at the beauty of nature. Although Jewett sometimes features her work in galleries and exhibitions, she mostly sells them in her Etsy store. She also sells prints on her deviantArt page.
