Cordelia Cembrowicz, from Bristol, is an artist who carved tooth fairies from children's milk teeth. Using a specially adapted drill, a rotary cutter and magnifying glass, she spends about almost 20 hours to carve a tooth.

Implications - According to Cordelia Cembrowicz herself, she first "realized what a powerful material" teeth are when she held her own baby teeth in her hand. The first thing she thought of was the Tooth Fairy and how she was a mythical figure who represented the ideas of "sanctuary and reward". As a result, all of her teeth artworks pay tribute to this cherished childhood personality and her benevolent role in helping children see the bright side of an otherwise painful process.
