Carved from Lead

Dalton Ghetti creates amazing miniature carvings from the graphite of pencils. Ghetti told The New York Times in 2007 that he’s been carving different materials since he was a child, starting with bark from trees and moving to soap and chalk before sticking with graphite. His sculptures range from busts of Elvis to interlaced hearts to the full alphabet over 26 pencils, the last of which took a full 30 months to complete.
