More to the Story

Curio Octopus among other graphite objects are handmade by San Francisco-based artist Agelio Batle. As a sculptor, Batle is committed to making art from materials used in daily experience. These investigative nature of his graphite sculptures stem from his background in the sciences.

From Batle himself:

It's not the pencil that draws, it is your hand.

Whether drawing lines or inscribing words, the act of making marks lures ideas into the physical world. Hands perceive and reveal things that our eyes and conscious minds may never know. We discover things about ourselves and our thoughts by engaging the hand in a mark-making process.

Drawing Hand suggests that our own hands have the innate capacity to be creative instruments. An object full of innocence, desire, pleasure and human potential, it invites you to access your imagination and discover its infinite possibilities.
