Graphite Letters

Most of us would use a pencil to draw a letter “A.” Not British carpenter/artist Dalton Ghetti. He carves tiny letters (and other objects) into the tips of pencil leads.

Dalton uses three basic tools to make his incredible creations – a razor blade, sewing needle and sculpting knife. He even refuses to use a magnifying glass and has never sold any of his work, only given it away to friends. He said: “I use the sewing needle to make holes or dig into the graphite. I scratch and create lines and turn the graphite around slowly in my hand”

See more of his work in this slide show from The Telegraph.
