Pencil Graphite Carving Sculpture

A carpenter pencil is a pencil that has a body with a rectangular or elliptical cross-section to prevent it from rolling away.

Carpenter pencils are easier to grip than standard pencils because they have a larger surface area. I have been using carpenter pencil to write a calligraphy in Arabic with cuts the lead with 45°. Pencil is just an ordinary tool for writing, but it also can be a great masterpiece.

What I’m doing is – I cut the carpenter pencil into half and pull out the graphite from it and carving and stick it each other to make an replica model like Mack Truck with Speed Boat, Jubilee Clock Tower and Kapitan Keling Mosque Tower located in Penang, Malaysia .

Mack Truck with Speed Boat are inspiration from Johor Sultan that buy the world most expensive-ever Mack truck who needed something sturdy to tow his speedboat. The Kapitan Keling Mosque Tower located in Penang, Malaysia are tributed artwork for 215 years of that mosque and Jubilee Clock Tower are one of historical tower clock and iconic monuments in Penang, Malaysia

This kind of artwork can be created just using a knife and tiny chisel to carve detailed “Pencil –Tip Carving/Sculptures” . For creating this artwork we must have lots of passion and have to be very careful when working with black lead of pencil, as the smallest lack of attention can lead to cracking. The small part has been joint together with glue and must be very detail observation.DSC_0887 DSC_0888 DSC_0921 DSC_0924 DSC_0885 DSC_0881
