Blackwing Volume 17


Gardens have long been a place for meditative contemplation.  They provide us with an escape from a world that constantly demands our attention.

The Blacking Volume 17 examines the mindful practice of gardening.  Each pencil features an earth-toned colour palette: olive green finish, dark brown ferrule and imprint, and burgundy eraser.  Each pencil also features balanced graphite and a 10cm ruler stamped into the barrel which can be used to chart the growth of seedlings in your plant log.

Graphite: Balanced.  Released September 2023.
