At first glance, the works of Jan Campbell, an Irish artist look like small, exquisitely crafted wood carvings, with delicate lines and rich emotions, but these exquisite carvings are not carved in wood, but avocado pits.
These carvings of avocado pits originated in 2014 when she was making avocado sandwiches for lunch and didn’t want to throw away the pits, so she started thinking about what to do with them.
She put the pit in her coat pocket and found that when her fingernails scratched the surface of the pit, it would turn into beautiful deep orange, so she got the idea of carving the pit, and then tried to carve a "weird little face", which launched her career as avocado pit carving.
Campbell has delicately turned these pits into a variety of hand-held totems and pendants, including dreamy figurines, forest guardians, plants, and others. The characters may be different, but their intricate sculptural details are impressive.
