It took me a while to realise why this seemingly unremarkable stepping stool was valued at $70-100,000 from Christie's- they're some of the best in the business, after all! It turns out that the artist, Adam McEwen has made this stool entirely from graphite, a notoriously brittle and hard to work with medium, yet here is an entirely convincing step stool! Christie's are auctioning this piece on the 23rd of September.
