Beam Paints Sugar Maple Pencil Holder 5-Hole

In stock




Sugar Maple Palettes carefully gathered from the Beam family’s sugar bush, the place where they make maple syrup. These small pieces of wood come from the magical Inaatig in the Ojibwe language or Acer saccharum in Latin, finally Sugar Maple in English. Every spring they tap hundreds of these trees when the nights are freezing but the day is above zero and the sun is shining. It’s a time of getting together, hard work, and family. It doesn’t hurt the tree and this same acreage has been caretaken by the Beam families since and before the treaties of this area were signed. It takes 40 litres of sap to make one litre of maple syrup!

Part of caring for the trees is carefully removing some dry branches, these palettes are made from those offcuts. Like living stone, they exude strength and feeling.

This pencil holder features 5 holes for your pens, pencils or brushes.
