Miniature Pencil Sculptures

Telegraph reports: [edited]

Many artists have used pencils to create works of art - but Dalton Ghetti creates miniature masterpieces on the tips of pencils. Dalton, who works as a carpenter, has been making his tiny graphite works for about 25 years

Dalton uses three tools to make his incredible creations - a razor blade, sewing needle and sculpting knife. He refuses to use a magnifying glass and has never sold any of his work, only given it away to friends. A standard figure will take several months.

The longest Dalton has spent on one piece was two and half years on a pencil with interlinking chains.
