Pencil Sculptures

This morning, I found these images in an email from my sister.
The artist who makes these tiny sculptures out of the graphite tips on pencils, is called Dalton Ghetti. Needless to say, Mr. Ghetti has magical fingers. What beautiful tiny creations he makes! I looked him up and found more information on the Kidrobot blog.
Ghetti was born in Brazil and is now based in Connecticut, he apparently does this as a side project, next to being a professional carpenter. He has been perfecting his art for the last 25 years and has never sold one sculpture. He gives them away to friends...

 These kinds of finds inspire me and make my days happier.
