Artist Turns Pencils Into Rustic Wooden Vases

What can you do with a bunch of pencils besides sharpen them up and draw with them? Some people might start a pencil fighting league, others would glue them together and make a number 2 log cabin, but Finnish artist Tuomas Markunpoika uses them to create a unique take on home décor- wooden pencil vases.

The beauty of these vases isn't necessarily in their unique look, but rather in the ingenious way Tuomas goes about making each one:

Tuomas glues the pencils together into sheets, stacks the sheets up to a desired thickness then uses a machine lathe to carve them into a delightfully artsy vase, the combination of meticulously handmade element and a bit of machining giving each vase a uniquely rustic look and enhanced durability.
