Blackwing Volume 155 | The Bauhaus Pencil
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. Each pencil features Palomino's soft graphite core, their first-ever black eraser clip, jaunty yellow eraser, and a design inspired by the simple shapes and colors that have become a hallmark of the Bauhaus style, each pencil is unique in the placement of these decorative elements. Though only 155 students graduated from the Bauhaus School, its philosophies have had an immeasurable impact on artists around the world. An insert with a brief overview of the School is included.
