This Canadian Artist Makes Incredible Sculptures Out Of Driftwood, Seashells, Dried Mushrooms And More

Debra Bernier is a talented artist from Canada who makes incredible sculptures out of driftwood as well as other natural materials, such as seashells, dried mushrooms, roots, bones, crystals and so much more.

The earth, the ocean, and even the moon, with their impacts on the tides, are said to have a hand in molding the wood that floats on the seas, according to the artist. For this reason, the sculptor considers herself only a co-creator of her works. She aims to reveal the secret history and soul of the wood via her crafts. Her goal is to emphasize how closely connected humans are to the natural world.

This is so beautiful, combining many different elements in a single work made with a single material.

Gorgeous!

Another sleeping old soul. Such beautiful face work, looks so very real….!

Old woman of the Sea bottom, I fear. Beautiful and so old but still color in her cheeks as though she may speak at any moment…!
