Amazing Pencil Carving Art by Getty Dalton

Posted on 02 August 2010

Pencil – only a tool used for painting, drawing, or putting down notes in the margins. In anyone – yes, but not at the Getty Dalton. This 45-year-old resident of Bridgeport for 25 years turns ordinary pencils into miniature sculptures, without using a magnifying glass .

Dalton Getty works very slowly. He does not use any special tools: for he needed only a blade, a sewing needle and a very bright light. To protect their vision, the author works for one and half hours a day. One tiny sculpture may take several months, and the creation of the previously mentioned script in Dalton took 2,5 years. “When I tell people how long it takes me to create sculptures, they simply do not believe me, – says Getty. – My patience is simply amazing people, because nowadays everyone wants to be quicker, faster and faster.
