Pencil Tip Carvings!

This is one of the most incredible art forms I have seen. I received this in one of those awesome e-mail forwards that mothers love sending daily :) After doing some research, I found that the artist's name is Dalton Ghetti. Check out his work {here}. This work is sharp! (pun totally intended) and he does this all without a magnifying glass. Born in Brazil, 49 year old Ghetti says he has been carving since he was a schoolboy - things ranging from stones, large piece of wood, soap, broom hands - until he found this niche.

  26. This is just amazing and I am going to share this and put a link back to your blog. I was very touched when I read his biography and the 9-11 where he made a single teardrop each day and it took him 10 years to make 3,000 for the memorial http://www.daltonmghetti.com/memorial.asp

  27. Some of the pieces may have been done by this gentleman: http://cerkahegyzo.deviantart.com/

    His work displayed is certainly very similar.

    2. Hi Janette -

      I actually did not create this work. The name of the artist is Dalton Ghetti. I was unable to find a website that belonged to him at the time that I created this post, however it seems there is one now! http://www.daltonmghetti.com/

      Thanks!!
