Finnish artistTuomas Markunpoikamakes beautiful vases, but what those vases are made out of makes them even more impressive. Yes, Markunpoika uses wood, but not just any kind. To make his vases, he uses the lumber of talking trees that gained magical powers from being struck by lightening multiple times on the eve of summer solstice–I mean pencils. He uses pencils to make his vases. Less dramatic, but still pretty cool!
