Danny forwarded this great idea for a continuation of the life/death cycle.
This is a 240 pencil set made from the carbon of a cremated human. Each pencil is foil stamped with the name of the deceased.
The clever part Only one pencil can be removed at a time. You sharpen the pencil by putting it back in the box. The shavings then occupy the space of the used pencils. Over time the pencil box fills with sharpenings — turning the box into a new urn (it’s filled with the shavings which are made from the cremation).
