I’m a bit late to the table with this item, but was nonetheless blown away by the visually stunning and technically jawdropping art work of Dalton Ghetti. And one can never have too much eye candy  -right! Have a look and see for yourself.

Dalton Ghetti Alphabet Series

I have to admit, when I first saw these I was viewing on my iphone, and was drawn to the composition. Since i’m in 4th of July getaway mode, I thought they were a beautiful display of buoys. {get the glasses out} Yikes, imagine my shock when I  realized they were miniature sculptures carved on the heads of up-cycled pencils!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.  I was unable to find a web site for Dalton Ghetti, but understand he works in CT., and is currently undertaking a project with carvings to memorialize each of the victims from 9/11.  I can only imagine how moving a piece that will be and look forward to seeing its completion. If anyone has further information, please let me know.
