Beautiful Depictions of Leaves and Other Botanicals Made from Hundreds of Staples

Artist Alison Foshee creates beautiful artworks using hundreds of office staples arranged in astonishingly detailed interpretations of leaves and other botanicals. Self-defined as “craft sciences,” Foshee’s work explores how everyday materials or found objects can express inner states of being or emotion through metaphors derived from the material’s original function. She says,"I enjoy working these raw materials with the geeky intensity of a Rubik's cube puzzle master and relish the challenge of finding new meanings in objects that have become banal."
