In a world in which so many of the products we acquire are machine-made, something like the Pencil Case Collection catches one's attention. This delightful set of writing utensils comprises pieces that have been individually whittled from wood by the artist's own hands.
Camille Barnard, a London-based designer, used wooden sticks to carve the shapes of ballpoint pens, Sharpies, glue sticks, erasers, rulers and protractors. These express the formal imperfections of the freehand sculpting medium while quite accurately representing the inky tips, the caps and the familiar shapes of office supplies. The Pencil Case Collection is complete with the application of paint, dressing up the faux items with the colors and brand names that you'll see at the stationery shop.
