Tuomas Markunpoika Turns Everyday Pencils into Extraordinary Vases
Here at Inhabitat we have already seen household objects and even tiny sculptures created from pencils. But we love the way Tuomas Markunpoika from Studio Markunpoika works them into unique crafty vessels. To make the stunning functional pieces he glues hundreds of hexagonal shape pencils, one by one, using a water-based solution.
Once he has a block of pencils, he gives form to the vases using a lathe machine. This clever process unveils the pencils’ inner beauty through dots and lines. The Amalgamated collection is made from Faber-Castell pencils and in collaboration with Gallery FUMI.
