These graphite objects by sculptor Agelio Batle are meticulously created in his San Francisco studio through a unique process he invented. Carbonaceous graphite is combined with smudge-resistant compounds and fused under pressure into various forms of nature. All of the surfaces can draw and the graphite will resist smudging on your hands. They are long lasting - if used daily, each will last about seven years. A perfect gift for the writer, collector or one who has everything!
