Dalton Ghetti creates amazing pencil sculptures by hand, holding the pencil under a strong light source and carving with a sewing needle and a very sharp, triangular, small, metal blade.
His idea is to bring people’s attention to small things. Small is beautiful. Most of the pencils he uses are found on the streets and sidewalks. Dalton’s work is a recycling process. He turns discarded objects into art.
His pencil carvings are not for sale. He doesn’t do it for money. He sculpts pencils mostly for himself and his art comes from his heart. He wants to keep it that way.
