These handmade pencils are made from a simple recipe developed by Ariane Prin that uses the wood dust generated from her studio in London mixed with water and out-of-date flour from local shops. They have a beautiful wooden texture and come in a variety of body colours depending on what type of wood Ariane has cut during the day.
Create your very own set from her collection which includes lead (HB quality), red, green, yellow and blue.
Delivered in handmade glassine packaging. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery as these pencils are shipped from the UK.
Ariane Prin is a product designer from the Champagne region of France, now working in Hackney Wick, London. Her studio is home to a wide variety of joyously messy, dirty and noisy projects, ranging from water cups inspired by public fountains, to a shop featuring products made from local recycled waste. All of her products originate in their specific social and environmental contexts, with materials chosen for their relation to the locality.
