Artist Carves Avocado Pits Into Magical Figurines

It always seems like a shame to throw out avocado pits, especially given how easy it is to grow an avocado tree from a pit, and yet if you eat avocados like I do then you're bound to end up buried in pits if you save them all.

But now that I've seen the amazing avocado pit sculptures created by Jan Campbell I'm thinking it's time to whip out the old carving knives and sculpt those "stones" into scary monster faces.

Jan is an Irish artisan with a healthy love of Celtic mythology, so she doesn't carve the stones (what she calls the pits) to look like scary monsters- she turns them into figurines of forest spirits, mythic beings and the occasional Venus of Willendorf.

Jan sells her amazing pit carvings through her Etsy shop and her website Avocado Stone Faces, and she posts her latest creations via Instagram in case you want to see what she comes up with next.

I find Jan's sculptures to be truly inspirational and a great excuse to eat more avocados!
