Blackwing Volume 155
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 our soft graphite core, our first-ever black eraser clip, and a design inspired by the simple shapes and colors 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.

Ordered 2 boxes these from Rustico because Blackwing had sold out. First shipment came with only one box. Rachel from Rustico immediately solved the problem and second box came promptly. Friendly and helpful customer service is invaluable. Well done and Thanks. DrC
