As Jan Campbell was preparing his avocado for lunch one day, she was amazed by the beauty of its pit. After weeks of considering its potential, Campell was inspired by its deeply pigmented surface scratch, so she carved away its layers until an amazing piece of art appeared.
Ever since, the Irish artisan has been transforming avocado pits (or ‘stones,’ as she calls them) into small, intriguingly detailed figurines inspired by Celtic folklore. The miniatures can be displayed as statues, and are meant to give the holder with a beautiful sense of companionship and comfort.
Take a look at some of Jan’s finest creations below, and you will never want to throw the avocado’s pit again!
