Agelio Battle is an artist living in San Francisco. His sculpture tries to "find epiphany in mundane materials" such as maps, newspaper, dictionaries and pencil lead.
The latter has found its way into an expanding series of accessible sculptures that are not only works of art, but also functional drawing tools.
The objects he chooses are often organic and geometric shapes and are inspired by his background in biology and passion for the outdoors. They are then cast using carbonaceous graphite, which sets smudge-free. The entire sculpture can be used like a pencil, as its entire surface is graphite.
Each sculpture is produced in a limited series. Prices start around $45 and are available at Agelio Batle's ABS Workshop.
