In 1998, Sculptor Agelio Batle developed a process to create sculptures in solid graphite. Initially, he created his own hand (Drawing Hand No. 1), and then botanical and other natural forms followed. Each piece is cast using carbonaceous graphite and can be used in its entirety as a pencil. It is treated with a polymer that helps prevent the graphite from rubbing into one’s hands. All of Studio Batle’s Graphite Objects wear very slowly and will last an average of 7 to 9 years with everyday use.
