Let the Y-Ball stimulate your imagination!
The Y-Ball is a set of 30 Y-shaped magnetic design pieces that can be arranged in a variety of different ways. It is a companion product to the popular X-Ball and Ball of Whacks.
The inspiration for the Y-Ball is the 'skeletal' truncated icosahedron, or orb-like geometric future long admired for its beauty (it's the traditional soccer ball shape). Some ways to play with it:

The first time we tasted SQIRL's jams - Seascape Strawberry and Rose Geranium - it was nearly a religious experience. It was a lazy morning at The Sea Ranch, and we spread this ethereal jam over some rustic bread. We were instantaneous devotees.
Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles makes their jams in copper jam pans using traditional techniques from the 1500's. Organically farmed produce, fair trade organic sugar and no commercial pectin.

Heavy enough to stop a door (or flatten your pickles)
Pound is a doorstop or paperweight that was inspired by traditional Japanese pickling stones. Picking stones have to be heavy enough to hold down a pickling barrel's lid. We're certainly a fan of a good pickle, but in reality ours is destined to hold a door open here at The Sea Ranch, Placewares' home on the 'breezy' Sonoma Coast.
The Pound's surface is a smooth granite stone with a rope hand strap.
Each Pound stone is unique and one-of-a-kind. Made in Kagawa, Japan.
