Dalton Ghetti Artwork

Artists have been using pencils forever to create art...but I have never seen anything like this. Beautiful pieces of art crafted out of the graphite of a pencil.

These miniature masterpieces are a side project for the professional carpenter, who has been perfecting this art for the last 25 years. Dalton Ghetti uses a razor blade, sewing needle, a sculpting knife, a steady hand and lots of patience to meticulously carve the graphite which can take anywhere between a few months to a few years.

I am in awe!
