Graphite Sculptures

San Francisco artist Agelio Batle creates miniature graphite sculptures which can be used as functional drawing tools. Committed to making art from materials that are part of daily experience, the artist originated this work by casting his own hand in pencil lead, graphite. Agelio explains,"It's not the pencil that draws, it is your hand. Whether drawing lines or inscribing words, the act of making marks lures ideas into the physical world. Hands perceive and reveal things that our eyes and conscious minds may never know."
