Pencil sculptures…

Bridgeport, Connecticut

Brazilian-born Dalton Ghetti carefully crafts the tips of pencils into amazing miniature sculptures, a sideline project for the professional carpenter who has been perfecting this art for the last 25 years. Dalton uses a razor blade, sewing needle, a sculpting knife, a steady hand, and lots of patience to meticulously carve the graphite… he has never sold these tiny works of art; he’s only given them away to friends as gifts. View an online gallery of these remarkable miniatures here.
