Sup Travellers?! It's amazing, all the things you can do with a pencil. You can create entirely new worlds with drawings and literature. You can solve complex mathematical equations and draw maps to amazing lands but who knew that pencils can be used to make --- well --- vases.

Finnish artist Tuomas Markunpoika, of Studio Markunpoika, glues hundreds of pencils together in sheets and then uses a machine lathe to carve them down into these bizarre and beautiful vases.

"Pencils are utilized when giving form to our thoughts, illustrating our wishes and ideas. They are inseparably fused with craft and arts," explains Markunpoika. "'Amalgamate' is a collection which explores the relationship of a mass produced 'tool' and its individual purpose. The beauty of the pencil as an object seems to go unnoticed if utilized only for their primary purpose."

Check out the photos below and the video above to see how it's done. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
