    Brazilian born, Connecticut based, Dalton Ghetti carefully crafts the tips of pencils into amazing micro sculptures. These miniature masterpieces are a side project for the professional carpenter, who has been perfecting this art for the last 25 years. Dalton uses a razor blade, sewing needle, a sculpting knife, a steady hand and lots of patience to meticulously carve the graphite which can take anywhere between a few months to a few years. Over time he has broken many works in progress and keeps them in what he calls the cemetery collection. One of the most fascinating things about these tiny works of art is that he has never sold them, only given away to friends as gifts.

    miniature people on food landscapes by christopher boffoli

    christopher boffoli has shared with designboom his most recent pieces of his still-life photographic and small-scale sculpture series, ‘big appetites’.  each artwork of the collection features miniature figures engaged in a theatrical moment within a food formed landscape. the seattle-based artist informed us that the origin of this particular artistic venture was born from ‘a lot of the media I was exposed to as a child.  there were so many films  and television shows that exploited both the dramatic and comedy potential of a juxtaposition of different scales:  tiny people in a normal-sized world. it is a surprisingly common cultural theme going back all the way to jonathan swift’s gulliver’s travels in the 18th century and perhaps earlier’. the collection of images exudes an imaginative quality, as each photograph draws from a child-like understanding of objects in the world understood  in entirely disproportional scales. the incredibly small figurines developed by boffoli for each scene are each painstakingly crafted in their diminutive forms in the artist’s continued exploration of his childhood affinity for ‘tiny, meticulously detailed things’.

INNOVATIVE DOORKNOB
Even doorknobs can be improved upon. If a door is locked it should not be available to even try and open.

Cool, this eliminates awkwardly turning the doorknob to see if it’s locked.
