Herb Williams creates amazing sculptures with thousands of individual crayons. The process of working with the crayons and turning them into something that was not the intend use for the crayon, intrigued him right from the start.
He is one of the only individuals who has an account with crayola crayons. He orders each color individually packed (3000 to a case) and cut them down to the length he needs. He bonds the paper—not the wax—to a form I have carved or cast, completely covering it with crayons.
Here is a quote from his Plunderland artist statement:
"I often begin a work without fully realizing why I have to create it, rather a strange inner drive to make solid that which is just dream-like subconscious internalizing all of the inordinate stimuli around me. It is usually only after I have finished a work that the total realization and comprehension of meaning behind the work becomes apparent."
