Dalton Ghetti is a trained carpenter, but has chosen to use his skills in a very different way. He carves the lead in standard graphite pencils, to make some of the most intricate works of art I have ever seen. Each piece takes months to make, using just a razor blade, sewing needle, and a sculpting needle.
Apparently he does not sell his pieces, he only ever gives them away to family and friends. If anyone has his contact details I think I'd like to become one of his friends please.
