Studio Markunpoika (Tuomas Markun Poika) is producing vases made out of hundreds of pencils in a series called “Amalgamated”. The writing utensils are treated as raw materials, glued together, and shaped with a lathe. There is something so satisfying about watching the video below!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image.
