Classic Graphite Swallow
The classic graphite SWALLOW is inspired by his reverence of Nature, and informed by his formal studies in Art and Science, San Francisco artist Agelio Batle has created this innovative sculptural writing implement. Natural graphite and smudge resistant compounds are fused in specialized forms under intense pressure. Handcrafted, using new and old world techniques, each piece is meticulously fashioned using the innovative methods that Batle originated. Any part writes, while it resists staining your hands.
Swallows announce the arrival of spring in darting, twirling dance that belies their fierce determination. Having braved a 6000 mile, non-stop migration, they roost, singing in eaves and under ledges of our own shelter. We stand, gazing upward before them, humbled by their endurance and awe struck by their constancy and grace. Symbols of faith, honor, love, and hope, they inspire our highest ideals.
