Pencils With A Story: Salvaged Red Cedar
This is a pencil with a story. This Australian red cedar pencil used to be a dressing table. It was made in the 1940’s for Iris by her carpenter brother and spent many decades holding hairbrushes, mirrors and delicate embroidered handkerchiefs. When Iris passed away, the dresser was inherited by her daughter, Gail. Gail didn't have room in her home for the old but still so lovely dressing table, but wanted to preserve and honour her family heritage so she had pens made from the lovely vintage red cedar timber for herself and her three children (Iris’s grand children) and donated the rest to us for passing on to you. This pencil carries within it many family memories.
The timeless, sleek design of the slimline pencil is unsurpassable. It rests lightly in the hand and writes and sketches beautifully.
This wooden pencil is created by an artisan who hand turns each pencil on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the Australian timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each bespoke pencil we create are one of a kind.
