Studio Markunpoika, run by Finnish designer Tuomas Markunpoika, created a series of vessels carved from hundreds of hexagon-shaped pencils glued together and carved out using a machine lathe.
“Pencils are utilized when giving form to our thoughts, illustrating our wishes and ideas. They are inseparably fused with craft and arts,” writes Markunpoika. “‘Amalgamated’ is a collection which explores the relationship of a mass produces ‘tool’ and its individual purpose. The beauty of the pencil an object seems to go unnoticed if utilized only for their primary purpose.”
