AS Batle

  • 6300

These pencils are a mix of fine art and a functioning drawing tool. The beautiful writing instruments allow you to bring an artistic touch to your everyday life.


With uncanny intelligence and a curious nature, ravens have figured a permanent place in the lore of Northwest Coast native cultures. Cast as both a Trickster and the Creator, ravens are portrayed as selfish, mischievous and ever-hungry, foiling the unsuspecting and the prosaic. Despite its treacherous ways, native cosmology recognizes this Trickster's chaos as transformational. While he may leave ruin in his wake, he also reveals new possibilities and creative evolution. In its most popular tale, the raven steals the sun from hoarding old man then clumsily drops and breaks it illuminating the cold, dark world.

Quick facts:  Natural graphite & smudge resistant compounds fused in specialized forms under intense pressure. Handcrafted, each piece is meticulously fashioned using innovative methods artist Agelio Batle originated. Any part writes, while resisting staining hands. And yes, will break if dropped.

Each sculpture comes safely packaged in a special AS Batle Box with an enclosure telling about the artist and another telling about the significant item.
