These quirky animal sculptures by Ellen Jewett are an interesting combination of the animal kingdom, manmade parts and a variety of other interesting elements.

Ellen has taken animals such as foxes, cats, warthogs and owls and added all sorts of different parts and elements to them. Among those include machinery, other animal parts and pieces of nature. The result is a grouping of beasts straight from a steampunk story or fairytale.

Ellen has used a metal frame for her base and then added clay to finalize each animal sculpture. Her work with the hair and fur of each beast is most impressive as she intricately includes strands. These pieces would make great additions of decor to any nature enthusiast's house.
