pencil lead art


Who would have thought you could sculpt the alphabet on pencil lead?

Am absolutely amazed by the amount of patience it must have taken to get to such intricate sculptures. I break my pencil lead just writing! But artist Dalton Ghetti was able to create wondrous art with it!

I wonder though if the short length of these pencils is testament to the number of attempts to get to these magnificent miniature sculptures. If it is, then it seems the S was particularly difficult to make. :)

Watch out for another post on Dalton Ghetti's pencil sculptures next week. Meantime, let me leave you with links to previous posts on art from the most unusual and obscure things. Just click on each title.
