Dalton Ghetti has been carving sculptures from No. 2 pencils for nearly 30 years. As a child he carved tree bark and experimented with everything from soap to chalk before settling on graphite as his medium. A standard figure will take several months and the longest he's spent on one piece was two and half years (the pencil with interlinking lead chains). "The interlinking chains took the most effort and I was really pleased with it because it's so intricate people think it must be two pencils" says Dalton.
