Incredible Lead Pencil Sculptures

Published by

Since a young age, São Paulo-born artist Dalton Ghetti had a knack for tools. For his 9th Birthday, Ghetti received a set of metal tools for children. This is what he believes began his love of carving and hobby for carpentry. At 24, he moved to the USA where he earned an associate of arts degree in architecture, while working as a cabinet maker.
upon graduation he became employed as a home remodeller, a job which he continues doing today.

During his spare time, Ghetti enjoys carving small intricate objects our for lead pencils. His technique requires him to hold the pencil in his hand under a strong light source, carving with either a sewing needle or sharp triangular metal blade, gradually removing specks of graphite at a time. This process usually sees Ghetti working for one or two hour intervals at a time,
which results in the pieces taking months, or sometimes years to complete.
