Harriete Estel Berman's current installation in the Anita Seipp Gallery at Palo Alto's Castilleja School hangs like a colorful tapestry, gently swaying in the breeze and flickering in the light. A closer inspection, however, reveals that the curtain-like sculpture is made not of standard beads or fabric but pencils rows upon rows of recycled pencils in various hues and sizes.

This exhibit is now closed but if people are interested in more information they can go to my website page dedicated to this installation "Pick Up Your Pencils, Begin". It has fabrication shots from the five year assembly process.
