Brazilian born, Connecticut based carpenter and artist Dalton Ghetti sculpts pencil tips into tiny works of art. Pieces usually take months to complete, some as long as two and a half years. Even so Ghetti says he has never sold his work and calls it a hobby. "When I tell people how long it takes, that’s when they don’t believe it. That’s what amazes people more, the patience. Because everything nowadays has to be fast, fast, fast," he says.
