comments: shen-hui hsu is a designer from taiwan. the stone pencil sharpeners are beautiful in shape, form and volume. not only are they functional as a sharpener, they can also be used as a paper weight. i admire when designers work on everyday items that most people don't notice and make them functional and beautiful. there is something about giving thought and time to seemingly mundane items to transform them with poetic beauty while maintaining their utility that just makes me happy. enjoy!
