• pencil roll

    This pencil roll is an exploration into textural materials and what their inherent qualities can offer. Thick, industrial felt has the ability to hold its shape and cuts cleanly with no fraying. Cotton embroidery thread is easily manuevered by hand to produce precise, controlled stitches. These properties allow for simple construction with no finish work required. Each process becomes its product. A canvas pocket is hand-sewn onto the felt to protect pencil tips. [independent, 2012]
