Playing with Crayons

Artist Herb Williams creates original sculptures out of individual crayons that may require as many as hundreds of thousands. He is one of the only independent buyers in the world who maintains an account with Crayola. Herb explains, "Crayons are a gateway drug. To most adults, the sight and smell of crayons produce specific memories of childhood. The twist in the road to nostalgia is the creation of a new object, from a medium in which it was not intended. This element of unexpected interaction and play had me at hello."
