8 Sculptures Carved on the Tips of Pencils

These pencil sculptures are amazing.


Currently on display at the G. Gibson Gallery in Seattle, Washington, is the amazing artwork of Diem Chau. A Vietnam native, Chau and her family came to the United States as refugees in 1986.

After receiving her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts, she has since exhibited her work in New York, Miami, Seattle and Los Angeles. Below you will find a small sample of her miniature carvings on the tips of graphite pencils. You can find many more artworks on her official website and regularly updated blog.

In addition to pencil tip carvings, Chau also has an amazing series of highly detailed and ornate Crayon carvings that are worth exploring. The A-Z: Northwest Natives exhibit runs until October 12, 2013. If you’re in the Seattle area, Chau will be doing an ‘artist talk’ on September 21st at 12pm.

About caroleparkes

My husband calls me a butterfly because I flit from one hobby to another. Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.
