Chris Soal’s Wild Toothpick Sculptures

Arranged in the most un-toothpick-like formation we could imagine, South African artist Chris Soal explores the limits of this pedestrian material with impressive, organic sculptures. Originally dismissing toothpicks as a stupid material to work with, he became enamored with the way they take on a soft, organic look when bunched in specific ways. Fascinating exploration, and a true dedication to a material. Via Colossal:
