So when we needed them, they could fight the battles that we never could.
Finnish artist Jonna Pohjalainen first got the awesome idea for turning long aspen logs into giant colour pencils during an environmental art workshop in Pedvale, Latvia.
“She arrived there supply-less, but with an open mind. Every day, she would sit quietly, taking in the rural landscape, sharpening her pencils and watching the sunset. It was during those quiet moments that she got the brilliant idea to transform the gray aspen logs that surrounded her into gigantic color pencils.”
What a wonderfully playful idea. We’ll never look at skinny trees the same way again.
This remarkable creation is the work of Croatian metal artist Ivan Mavrović. What looks like an elaborate Steampunk pistol and is identified as a pen is SO much more than just a pen, we’re not sure where to start describing it. It’s the Metapen.
The Metapen started out as a pen, and a pretty handsome one at that, but while he was working on the pen, Ivan realized he could attach other objects to it and thus the astonishing design grew into an elaborate multitool. Made of brass, copper, steel, wood, and leather, the Metapen is also a fork, knife, spoon, lighter, usb stick, watch, light, screwdriver, pipe, toothbrush, shaving razor, nail clippers, and more.
