Lead Pencil Exhibits
Peter Trevelyan's Sculptures Are Made of Thin Graphite

Peter Trevelyan’s sculptures are made of thin lead sticks. The New Zealand-based artist has carved out a new niche of pencil-based design, one that exclusively incorporates thin bits of 0.5 mm-wide graphite from mechanical writing instruments.

Trevelyan was able to successful mold the graphite into a series of geometric shapes despite its underlying fragility. The material is known for its ability to shatter with even minimal pressure, and it is therefore a wonder that he has produced these immense exhibits.

His knack for precision stems from his professed interest in mathematics. Trevelyan remains meticulous in all his endeavors, and his past MFA degree from the Massey University School of Fine Arts and current PhD studies will continue to fine-tune his intricate trade.
