PENCIL SCULPTURES: MINIATURE MASTERPIECES CARVED INTO GRAPHITE BY DALTON GHETTI












Dalton Ghetti is an amazing artist from Connecticut who carves tiny sculptures into pencil lead. He uses three basic tools to make his incredible creations – a razor blade, sewing needle and sculpting knife. Dalton even refuses to use a magnifying glass and has never sold any of his work, only given it away to friends. The longest Dalton has spent on one piece was two and half years on a pencil with interlinking chains. A standard figure will take several months. He has a box full of more than 100 sculptures that have broken while working on them that he affectionately calls ‘the cemetery collection’.

Dalton Ghetti, o autor destas peças, utiliza apenas três utensílios básicos: uma lâmina de barbear, uma agulha de costura e uma faca de esculpir.
Estas pequenas obras de arte não estão á venda, segundo o criador, são apenas dadas a amigos.
Cada peça demora meses a ser acabada, isto quando não se partem durante o processo. Ghetti refere carinhosamente a caixa onde guarda as obras partidas como ‘the cemetery collection’.
