Pencils made from waste collected at RCA by Ariane Prin
Royal College of Art graduate Ariane Prin caught our attention at Show RCA last week by exhibiting pencils made from residue collected from inside the school.

Clay from the ceramic department
Wood dust from the wood workshop
Graphite from the glass department
Called From Here For Here, the highly sustainable project aims to find new uses for waste, and make a product from it that will suit the needs of the place from where the waste was collected.

Ariane designed an extrusion machine for this specific purpose, and the pencils produced were both made and sold as souvenirs during the RCA show.
