These graphite pencils by sculptor Agelio Batleare simply divine.
Batleare - who uses nature as his inspiration - makes each graphite pencil using a unique casting and carving process he developed. Carbonaceous graphite is combined with a smudge-resistant binder under heat and pressure. It is then cooled and solidified into the delicate forms you see before you.
Whilst the artist sees these objects as sculpture, but they are also fully functional drawing toolsm and all of their surfaces can write.
At $35, enjoy these in whatever way you wish.
