Amazing Pieces of Pencil Art

Pencils have always been used to create wonderful pieces of art, but Dalton Ghetti has turned the pencils themselves into pieces of art in their own right.  Born in Brazil, and now based in Conneticut, Dalton specialises in creating micro-sculpures using the pencil leads. These are his 10 best.

Dalton is actually a professional carpenter who has been perfecting these tiny sculptures in his spare time over the last 25 years.

He is a very patient man, as some pieces can take a year to complete.

He also has a box of over 100 sculptures that broke while he was doing them.

None have been sold. Dalton has kept most and given others away as presents.

These link sculptures are amazing! All from one piece of lead. How does he do it?
