Artist Carves Into Pencils to Create Incredible Sculptures


Equipped with a box of pencils and some carving tools, a Hungarian artist known simply as cerkahegyzo manages to produce incredibly detailed miniature sculptures. Each creation is constructed entirely out of its respective pencil, utilizing the wood and lead as its base and body. Cerkahegyzo uses the fine blades of razors and needles as well as the buffing capabilities of sandpaper, files, and polishing stones to whittle and shape his intricate pencil creations.

The Budapest-based sculptor effectively constructs patterns and designs that creatively make the eyes wander back and forth and, at times, seem almost impossible. Like Dalton Ghetti, cerkahegyzo is a meticulous master of pencil sculpting. The artist even pays homage to Ghetti by replicating his sculptures of a heart, screw, and linked chains. Additionally, cerkahegyzo adds a playful touch, using tiny props to enliven images of his carvings. A needle and spool made out of the dark core of a pencil is cleverly adorned with bright, orange thread and a seemingly slithering snake is given some ambience with an accompanying sprout.
