Palomino Blackwing Graphite Pencil - Volume 155BLACKWING
When Walter Gropius published his Manifesto of the Staatliches Bauhaus in the spring of 1919, he declared that "there is no essential difference between the artist and the artisan." In the years that would follow, his Bauhaus Art School would seek to tear down the wall between the fine and the applied arts. Members of the Bauhaus movement created iconic modern art including chairs, buildings, paintings, and sculptures.
The Blackwing 155 is a tribute to the Bauhaus School and its legacy of craftsmanship.
The pencil features a soft graphite core, and Blackwings first-ever black eraser clip, and a design inspired by the simple shapes and colours that have become a hallmark of the Bauhaus style. Though only 155 students graduated from the school, its philosophies have had an immeasurable impact on artists around the world.
