Amazingly Detailed Sculptures Carved from Single Lead Pencils


Hungarian artist Cerkahegyzo creates amazingly detailed miniature sculptures from single lead pencils. He says that it’s a form of relaxation and most importantly, a fun hobby to take his mind off the daily grind as a professional tool-maker in Hungary.

Cerkahegyzo says he started carving after coming across the highly detailed sculptures of artist Dalton Ghetti who also uses lead pencils as his preferred medium.

Tools used include: needles, razor blades, sandpaper, files, polishing stones and all varieties of pencils (e.g., HB, B, 2B, 4B).
