Swallows announce the arrival of spring in darting, twirling dance that belies their fierce determination. Having braved a 6000 mile, non-stop migration, they roost, singing in eaves and under ledges of our own shelter. We stand, gazing upward before them, humbled by their endurance and awe struck by their constancy and grace. Symbols of faith, honor, love, and hope, they inspire our highest ideals.
Each Graphite Object is a fully functional writing utensil, and a unique sculpture. Made by artist Agelio Batle, uses a special process of high pressure, graphite and wax to create a beautiful sculpture whose entire surface can draw, but does not smudge the hands.
