The fusion of organic and ceramic employs innovative craftsmanship resulting in a clean design that belies the challenges entailed in uniting these materials.

The design for our pencil sharpener was
inspired by Japanese capsule toys aka
gashapon. The top is an integrally-formed
aluminum sharpener while its lower half is
a weighted zinc alloy. Resting on its heavy
bottom, this egg-shaped pencil sharpener can
rock around like a roly-poly toy.
