Not a day passes where we don’t stumble upon some incredible, interesting or just plain cool item on the internet. Even as fortunate as we are to be surrounded by the world-renowned beauty of Victoria, BC and Vancouver Island we still enjoy any opportunity to surf the web for inspiration the world over.
Recently the work of Dalton M. Ghetti has been making it’s rounds in the social sphere. Proof positive that spreading awareness for your product via Facebook and other social media is a winning strategy — but we’ve digressed. Allow us to introduce (or perhaps reintroduce) you to the amazing miniature sculptures of Ghetti. Dalton has carved these brilliant bits into the lead of old pencils. Patient and exacting, these pencil carvings are as brilliant as they are intricate. He begins by whittling down the pencil to the lead to create the foundation for the sculpture then starts the painstaking process of patiently removing each miniscule layer of wood and lead until he’s created another masterpiece of modern art.
Here are a few of our favorites, we hope you enjoy them as much as we have!
