For most of us pencil is just a tool used for painting, drawing, or updating checkbooks. But in the hands of Dalton, a Brazilian-born artist who lives in Bridgeport, these ordinary pencils turn into miniature sculptures. He carves sculptures out of the tips of pencils using sewing needle and razor blade. Apart from these he needs very bright light, and there is no use of a magnifying glass in creation of these artistic works. Each of these sculptures takes months to years to complete as he works for about an hour and a half a day. It took Dalton about two and half years to complete his best-known work, "Alphabet" a set of 26 pencils with each letter of the alphabet carved into the tip of the graphite.
