The following is a list of all entries from the materials category.


There’s something to be said about achieving immortality through one’s work, but it’s been pretty difficult to do so through one’s materials – until now. Carbon Copies makes pencils out of human cremains – one person supplies enough ash to produce 240 pencils. Your dead body could produce a great work of art, literally. This is both greatly awesome and extremely creepy (and I say this as someone who reads about death a great deal and has fantasized about allowing my remains to be used as a crash test dummy).

Another interesting form of reincarnation from the same designer: The human bird feeder
