Dalton - Artist

Artist Dalton, who is originally from Brazil, but now works as a carpenter in Connecticut, USA, has been carving art into the tips of pencils for about 25 years.

I first saw his work about a year ago when a friend of mine posted a jpeg on Facebook, but the image had no title and I had no idea who it was by. Then today I found a link to his work and so decided to share it with you all.

Dalton creates his pieces by hand, with only a razor blade, a sewing needle and sculpting knife and without the use of a magnifying glass.

I particularly like his 'cemetery collection' -a Styrofoam display case which house all of his broken designs on pinheads.
