Amalgamated: A Collection of Wooden Vases Made from Hundreds of Pencils Glued Together
“Amalgamated” is a collection of limited edition vases by studio markunpoika, constructed by individually gluing one facet of a pencil to another, taking benefit of their hexagonal shape forming a network of pencils. The block of pencils is machined with a lathe and turned into the final shape. The flow of each shape unveils a different pattern of the inner structure revealing the beauty of the pencil. Via their website,"Pencils are utilized when giving form to our thoughts, illustrating our wishes and ideas. They are inseparably fused with craft and arts, representing diverse relationships between artist and their creations."
