Amazingly Intricate Pencil Tip Sculptures by Diem Chau

The technical skill of some artists is truly incredible – these beautiful tiny sculptures have been painstakingly carved on the tip of a graphite pencil, something that I routinely snap by accident with my clumsy fingers.

These skillful miniature sculptures are the work of Diem Chau, an American artist who left Vietnam as a refugee in 1986. She seems to be fond of miniatures, in addition to the carved wooden pencil tips, she has also created a unique art series of miniature crayons spanning the entire Latin alphabet. The works of art from the pencil series feature miniature organic forms, primarily depicting animals and figures. One, however, creatively combines woodwork from the pencil as well.

According to Chau’s website, the detailed artworks are “delicate vignettes of fleeting memory, gesture, and form” and explores “moments forgotten and faded, or too brief to retain.”
