CLEVER PENCIL TIP ART
I've featured this form of art before, but I just think it is so clever.
Dalton Ghetti creates miniature works of art resting solely on the tips of lead pencils. What is even more impressive is the fact that he doesn't rely on the use of a microscope or magnifying lens to sculpt out his phenomenal creations. This is one exhibit you must literally see to believe!
Dalton's "tools of the trade" include; a razor blade, a sculpting knife, a sewing needle, and a few No. 2 pencils. He carves a wide variety of designs, which range from a horse figurine to a perfectly shaped hammer.
The Brazilian-born artist currently resides in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and is a carpenter by trade. He began his artistic hobby over 25 years ago as a form of meditation.
Clancy's comment: Amazing work, eh? If you are missing a pencil, you now know where it is. Thank you, Dalton.
