Dalton Ghetti’s unbelievable micro pencil sculptures

Goli Mohammadi

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

Connecticut-based artist Dalton Ghetti must have amazing eyesight. Pictured here are none other than pencils that he hand-carves to teeny tiny detail. Apparently, Ghetti is a carpenter by trade and the pencils are his side project. He uses razor blades, sewing needles, sculpting knives, and mad skills. My mind is officially blown. [Thanks, Markle!]
