School-Supply Artists
Szekely, George
Arts & Activities, v146 n2 p41, 48 Oct 2009
In school, the author sat next to Sandor the sculptor--when he was still undiscovered. He could take a pencil and, while seemingly listening in class, completely reshape the pencil by biting it. To detail his best pieces, Sandor would highlight the dents and gnashes with colored pens. Little did Sandor realize that his early efforts would be an inspiration to the author's art classes working on reshaping pencils, not with their teeth, but with simple woodworking tools and home finds. In this article, the author describes how his art class redesigned school supplies like pencils, cases, rulers, erasers, notebooks, binders, memo pads and school bags.
