A Gorgeous Wooden Sculpture of a Floating Coffee Cup Spilling Out a Rainbow of Colored Pencils

Bobby Duke, a very talented woodcarver and artist in Fort Worth, crafted an amazing wooden floating coffee cup that’s tipped over and spilling a rainbow of colored pencils that lands with a big splash onto its base. Duke sold it on eBay for $4,550 with 10% of the proceeds going to St. Jude’s Hospital.
