Small Quill

Do you know of a budding artist, poet or writer in need of a great gift? Is so, boy oh boy do I have the gift for you! All surfaces of these ‘Graphite Objects’ can draw and the graphite will resist smudging onto your hand.  With daily use the object will last 7 to 9 years…. Seriously. Appropriate for any age group, these Graphite Objects are equally an object of art, as well as a functional writing and drawing tool. 


Each of these Graphite Objects are carefully hand-crafted in Sculptor Anelio Batle’s 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 Graphite Object is completed.

Now that is pretty cool. 

Give us a call here at the gallery, or go ahead and order any of these Graphite Objects on the website before the big holiday!
