    Winter 2018 Happy Hour

The humble pencil is a requirement on nearly every Fleisher class and workshop supply list. Have you ever thought about how they are made? This beautiful photo essay looks at how General Pencil Company takes raw wax, paint, cedar planks, and graphite to create art's most ubiquitous tool.

    Inside One of America's Last Pencil Factories
    Over the past few years, the photographer Christopher Payne visited the factory dozens of times, documenting every phase of the manufacturing process. His photographs capture the many different worlds hidden inside the complex's plain brick exterior. The basement, where workers process charcoal, is a universe of absolute gray: gray shirts, gray hands, gray machines swallowing gray ingredients.
