Carved...


I saw these carved pencils on the Urban Outfitters blog. They're by artist Dalton Ghetti and I have no idea how I've never seen them before. Incredible. I should send him my pencil collection.

A lot of his work is on display at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore (which is where I first encountered it). I recommend a visit!

Amazing! The idea of it and then the fact that it could be executed are both equally amazing to me.

These are fantastic!

Amy said...

Those are truly amazing. I wonder how many times the letters broke before he got to a complete one. Maybe that's why the pencils are so short???

WOW... great item but what would you do with them? Are they all separate? Are they glued together to hand on the wall? Tiny cuteness.

This is incredible. I'm sure he spent too much time in carving those letters on the pencils.

Hi there, I'm loving your blog! Would you believe that just recently someone sent me info on the Carved pencil tops! Those are so impressive.

Please visit mine when you get a chance. I'd be interested in advertising on your blog, could you send me some details about this? Thank you.
