Agelio Batle - Owl Graphite Sculpture



Under the cover of night, the owl hunts, with uncanny stealth, swooping through the forest canopy. Armed with the sensitivity to see in complete darkness and to hear minute rustling at 75 feet, its prey rarely escapes. The Ancients of every culture in which it roosts, acknowledged its power and linked it to the world of secrecy and the supernatural. Perched on the arm of Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom, the owl reveals the hidden worlds beyond her reach, illuminating its dark and silent edges.


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.
