Artist Dalton Ghetti of Bridgeport, Connecticut spends his time carving tiny sculptures into the lead of pencils.

Mr. Ghetti completes his work using a sewing needle and a razor blade – and without the aid of a magnifying glass.

He sells postcards and posters of his work, but never the pieces themselves.

If you catch him playing chess with his friends and neighbors at the Harborview Market, you can even get him to autograph one of the postcards for you.
