Ginkgo Graphite SculptureAsianArtMuseumStore
In temples throughout China, the sacred ginkgo tree abounds. An ancient species of trees, the unchanging ginkgo is a reminder of the possibility of immortality.
San Francisco artist Agelio Batle makes unusual implements that are both objects of art and functional writing tools. Each piece is meticulously fashioned using Batle’s innovative methods, fusing natural graphite and smudge-resistant compounds under intense pressure. As a result, any part of the sculpture writes, but it resists staining your hands.
