Agelio Batle -Alligator Graphite Sculpture



Thriving in the fresh water habitats of the American subtropical southeast, the Alligator is the undisputed apex predator of land and water. Virtually unchanged for 200 million years, it is a floating time capsule armed with a prehistoric ferocity that fought with dinosaurs. The Alligator has been described as the "living fossil". Respected and admired throughout time, it has become a symbol of strength and power, a living reminder of the enduring untamable wilderness. 


Sculptor Agelio Batle makes these unusual implements that are equally an object of art and a functional drawing/writing tool. Each one was meticulously hand crafted in his San Francisco studio. First, he carves an original design in clay. With intense pressure, carbonaceous graphite (same material in pencils) and smudge-resistant compounds are fused into a reproducible form using a proprietary technique that Batle invented. Finally using delicate carving and traditional finishing techniques, the piece is completed. All their surfaces can draw and the graphite will resist smudging onto your hand. With daily use they should last 7 to 9 years.
