Dalton Ghetti = Miniature Sculptures from Old Graphite Pencils ... ART Amazing!

The alphabet sculptured from the tip of an old pencil ...
miniscule tools
delicate fingers of a genius ...
creating for hearts sake ...

peer at close up perfection ...
how can this be from a mere graphite pencil?

Ponder how easy does the lead usually breaks?
the wonder of this art is breath taking! 

Dalton Ghetti, 49, a Bridgeport artist, has spent 25 good years working with a razor blade, a sewing needle and a sculpting knife for carving his unique art on the graphite end of gnarled old, used, pencils.
Each of his artworks took up to two-and-a-half years in creation.
