“Dalton Ghetti is an amazing artist from Connecticut who carves tiny sculptures into pencil lead. He uses three basic tools to make his incredible creations – a razor blade, sewing needle and sculpting knife. Dalton even refuses to use a magnifying glass and has never sold any of his work, only given it away to friends. The longest Dalton has spent on one piece was two and half years on a pencil with interlinking chains. A standard figure will take several months. He has a box full of more than 100 sculptures that have broken while working on them that he affectionately calls ‘the cemetery collection’.
