Old fashioned and beautiful, Graphite Objects ($190) seem to recall traditional writing utensils. We'd pair the quill with a simple stationery set for a killer love letter writing set. Constructing a V-day gift from left field will encourage creativity and romance. We're crossing our fingers that we'll swoon at a later date.
Let us explain the other objects... Apparently, sculptor Agelio Batle chose an olive branch, a morel mushroom, and a quill for their "for their mystical qualities;" Symbols of peace, wisdom, and expedition respectively, these pieces are examples of Batle's search for "epiphany in mundane materials." In a
San Francisco Chronicle Feature he explains how his artfully consolidated home and studio space became inadvertently green. Grand symbolism and sweeping environmentalism: certainly something to aspire to. Interested in other works?
