Amalgamated Pencils Form Vases by Studio Markunpoika

Studio Markunpoika (tuomas markun poika) has developed a series of vessels called 'Amalgamated' constructed from assembled pencils.

Studio Markunpoika glues the facets of pencils together to form a solid block which then carved on a machine and lathes into shape.

“Amalgamated” 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 utilised only for their primary purpose."

“Amalgamated” is a visual and tactile investigation by using pencils as a raw material. This holistic principle has been the fundament for creating this set of vases; let the pencils become a thing themselves."

"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. pencils are extensions of our minds which enable us to transmit information through different mediums and time, collecting knowledge and creating it."

Amalgamated is available in three different shapes – 30 cm tall (edition of 30) and 45 cm tall (edition of 18) – and a range of color options.
