Dalton Ghetti  And His Pencils...

Pencils’ can sometime be more useful other than simply writing, sketching, taking down notes etc.
What if you see a pencil being used as an artwork itself? What happens when an artist uses ‘Pencil’

as his ‘Canvas.’ Michelangelo once said:  "I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

Here, we have a craftsman who uses pencil to bring his "Creations" out into the real world.

 

At school Dalton always sharpened pencils by hand, and would sometimes peel the paint from the pencil
and carve intricate designs into the wood. He noticed that a good blade cuts through both the wood and
through the graphite, leaving behind a nice flat and shiny surface. He began working on them until they
were perfectly round and cone shaped, then removed more wood as the graphite started to become part of
the carvings. He had found the perfect material for his miniature sculptures.

 

    We include his Miniatures Of Lead Work as more amazing "Creations And Collectibles"
