Using only a single material, Lauren Ryan crafted extremely lifelike pipe cleaner animals. The artist exclusive used pipe cleaners without the aid of glue. The only tool used in the construction of these amazingly realistic sculptures was scissors. Using the pipe cleaner's fuzz to simulate fur, Ryan created wolves and fictional animals.
With a focus on quadrupedal mammals, wolves, hyenas and spirit creatures called Okami Amaterasu were made. Ryan's inspiration behind the chosen animals was her love of wolves. With excessively realistic fur and striking eyes, you would never guess that these sculptures were made with pipe cleaners. Only upon closer inspection could you discern that the pipes were woven together and manipulated to create a realistic effect.
