Pencil Tip Micro Sculptures ....WOW Timeless Cool!

Earlier this week I read an article in the New York Daily News about an artist, Dalton Ghetti who was born in Brazil and now resides in Connecticut.  I was in awe.... He creates minature sculptures out of the tips of pencils.  Dalton works as a carpenter and carves in his free time. One of the projects he is presently working on is slowly carving a tiny, graphite tear for every 9/11 victim, finishing one each morning before he goes to work, and estimates it will take him 10 years to finish and display them together. 

You can view his work at the New Britain Museum of American Art: "Meticulous Masterpieces: Contemporary Art" by Dalton Ghetti through August 29th.
