Whoa, whoa, and whoa! Dalton Ghetti is an artist from Connecticut that carves amazing teeny tiny sculptures from pencil lead. Artists usually use pencils as a tool for their craft, never the other way around. These tiny sculptures blew me away, I mean LOOK AT THE DETAILS!!
Apparently Ghetti has never sold a piece, he only gives them as gifts to friends. Three basic tools are used for his creations, a razor, a needle, and a sculpting knife. A standard piece may take him a few months to carve and the longest he ever spent on a piece was two and a half years.
