Dalton Ghetti

Micro-sculptor Dalton Ghetti creates intricate, playful sculptures out of the graphite and wood of pencils. His limited palette of tools includes, a razor blade, sewing needle, and sculpting knife used for carving his creations. Ghetti, a carpenter by profession, is not formally trained as a sculptor and his 25 year portfolio of work grew organically out of making gifts for friends. Some of his pieces have taken years to complete, but Ghetti embraces the process and sees it as an escape from our fast-paced society, offering an opportunity to appreciate ‘the beauty in small things’, which often go unnoticed.
