After a rather long break, the pencil pot of the month category will be in use again, even if only temporarily.
Starting the pencil pots of 2023 off is a concrete pencil pot from Spanish company DOIY Design. I ordered this one from Zeitgeist London when it was on offer At the time of writing this blog post it still is on offer..
This Spanish designed and Chinese made pencil pot has a slight hue of pink. I find the “stairs” of this pencil pot interesting. They can be used as pen holders to rest full length pens, but they really excel as a place to store used pencils that got shorter with time.
Be warned though if you want to use expensive pens with this pen holder: Concrete can be quite rough, so in my opinion there is a slightly increased possibility of scratching the surface of pens you store in this pen holder if you are not careful.
