If you aren’t familiar with the website DeviantArt just yet, you should really check it out sometime. It is home to highly talented underground artists. The fifteen sculptures you see below are by Hungarian artist cerkahegyzo who has carved highly detailed sculptures from a single lead pencil (with the exception of #5 & #15).
Cerkahegyzo says carving these intricate designs out of pencils isn’t just a hobby, it’s actually a form of relaxation.
Finding relaxation wasn’t the only reason he decided to take up carving pencils, cerkahegyzo was inspired by the artist Dalton Ghetti, featured on Twisted Sifter a few years ago, who also uses a similar technique when it comes to sculpting pencils.
Various tools that are used range from needles, razor blades, sandpaper, files, polishing stones and a variety of pencils. Check out the incredible collection below!
These are pretty cool, I’d like one for myself. Be sure to give this a share with your friends on Facebook before you go. For more interesting stores delivered to your inbox subscribe to our e-mail list. (h/t twistedsifter, cerkahegyzo.deviantart.com )
