What would you write with Grampa?


Carbon Copies

Pencils made from the carbon of human cremains. 240 pencils can be
made from an average body of ash – a lifetime supply of pencils for
those left behind.

Each pencil is foil stamped with the name of the person. Only one
pencil can be removed at a time, it is then sharpened back into the box
causing the sharpenings to occupy the space of the used pencils. Over
time the pencil box fills with sharpenings – a new ash, transforming it
into an urn. The window acts as a timeline, showing you the amount of
pencils left as time goes by.

Let me repeat: alarming!  What if you’re one of those people that chews on their pencils?  I, for one, have no deceased family members I would enjoy chewing.  Or using to draft banal blog posts.
