Crazy Tiny Pencil Sculpture by Dalton Ghetti

Usually we use pencil as writing tools or drawing tools. Write a note, draw rough to start designing or create sketches artwork.

But a 49-year old carpenter from Bridgeport (Connecticut), Dalton Ghetti, see a pencil as a canvas. Yes! The tiny tip of a lead pencil become a canvas for him!

Starting as a hobby, he has made about 100 carvings. He uses sewing needle to make holes or dig into the graphite. He scratches and creates lines while turning the graphite around slowly in his hand. Also, he never buys the pencils, his friends are always giving them to him to sculpt or sometimes he uses the ones he finds on the street.
