Dalton, who has never sold any work and has only given it away to friends, usually spends several months on each figure. The longest piece, a pencil with interlinking chains, took him two and a half years, and he said it is so intricate that people often think it is actually two pencils.

With all of that delicate detail it’s not surprising that some pieces just don’t make it to the end. For these unfortunate accidents Dalton has a box, he has cleverly named ‘the cemetery collection,’ where he keeps over 100 broken pieces.

    This is trully art. An expression of art that reminds us of our happy days in school. May your hands, Dalton Ghetti, always be blessed. Art, as it is said, is in your hands. Congratulations,
    Paul Quintero (Zen Artist).
