While wandering through the “Big Tent” at the Mini Maker Faire, on Saturday, I came upon Dalton M. Ghetti. Instantly I recognized his sculptures–for two reasons–the first being that they are extremely small; the second being that they had been on display at the Library some months back.
The exactitude of his work is, quite frankly, mind blowing. “It takes a really long time,” he told me. “The Chain was two years.”
Dalton is a carpenter and he also works at the YMCA. His tools for sculpting are a razor blade, sowing needle, pieces of metal, pins and wire. No magnifying glass.
“I used to do large sculptures, as a challenge I decided to see how small I could make things.”
