Giant Log Pencils

Artist Jonna Pohjalainen has created this lovely set of gigantic colored pencils out of local aspen. I would be completely stoked to find this installation in the midst of a nature walk, wouldn't you? This from her artist's statement:

"I travelled to work in Pedvale with empty hands. I admired the lovely rural scene and the sunsets of Pedvale. I used local aspen in my work because of its lively forms and beautiful, grey colour. While you sharpen your pencils you can see time passing by. Colours bring joy and happiness in our everyday life. I chose a place of of my work because of the sunsets. You can sit and meditate near my work and look at the sunsets. Without sun there are no colours and life!"
