making letters- dalton ghetti

27 Sep

london’s welcomed us back with a huge array of exciting offerings, including a chance to check out american-based dalton ghetti’s beautiful miniature alphabet sculptures.

carved into the tips of almost-finished pencils, each letter is a testimony to the labouring patience of the craftsman- injecting new life into almost discarded objects.

the piece is on show at the v&a as part of its fantastic ‘the power of making’ exhibition- a must for crafters, innovators and general wow-hunters.
