“ Pencil Graphite Sculptures ” is artwork are made from various type of pencil lead to creating a tiny sculpture. I cut various pencils in half and pull out the graphite from them to make the amazing type of sculpture
Using a knife and a tiny chisel I carved the surface of the graphites. After I finished carving, I stuck them together one by one with extreme caution and glue it. To create such sculptures we must have lots of passion and be very careful when working with the black lead of the pencil, as the smallest lack of attention can lead to cracking.
