Floating Pencil Cup

The first version isn't the most stable and the weight of too many pens on one side can cause it to tip, but it's easy to imagine the base as metal wire in the next version, providing more stability and space.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take something already very simple and make it intriguing. This pencil cup is turned out of African Mahogany and seems as if it is a ring floating just above the surface. This effect causes a quick double-take of a normally ordinary object, followed by an innocent curiosity of how it's made.
