Graphite are lathed wooden bowls with a thin graphite (mineral) coating (surface). The graphite - familiar to everyone as writing substance in a pencil - is applied to the completed wooden surface on the lathe (rotating): the result is a thin, shiny (metallic), reflective, (deep) black surface - whereby the timber grain is partially shining through.
The (experimental) surface fundamentally changes the character of the material - from woody, warm, soft to metallic, (cold), hard: and yet the bowls also have a fragile (ceramic, glazed) character.
The bulbous rotational bodies reflect light and mirror the surroundings.
