These limited-edition Blackwing pencils are inspired by Corita Kent, “an educator, artist, and social justice advocate who believed that art could be a tool for dialogue, reflection, and change. The Volumes 93 pack is “a tribute to Corita and her message to slow down and find gratitude in the everyday. Each pencil features one of the six colorful brushstrokes that make up Corita’s iconic rainbow swash. Commissioned in 1971, the rainbow swash adorns a 140-foot-tall natural gas storage tank along Interstate 93 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The pencils contain our soft graphite and each set includes two of each color design.”
Each Blackwing pencil provides a soft, smooth writing experience for artists. Made of genuine Incense-Cedar casing and Japanese graphite with a matte black finish, these pencils are known for their iconic ferrule. The ferrule holds both the replaceable eraser and an eraser clip to allow flexibility in eraser length. A favorite of Cherryl Moote, these pencils are perfect for calligraphy practice, design sketches and more.
