Agelio Batle - Small Horn Graphite Sculpture



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.

 

Within the open crescent curve of the horn is the cradle of heroic strength.  Symbolic of power in many cultures, the horn possesses the eternal spirit arising from acts of bravery and loyalty.  The horn’s crescent reaches beyond its bounds, continually overflowing with protective magic, without emptiness
