!! OMG, how resourceful: Human Ash Pencils !!

British designer Nadine Jarvis has created a resourceful way to honour the dead while putting them to use:

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.

An average person will make about 240 pencils. Huh.
