Some people have a knack for taking ordinary items and turning them into extraordinary things. For Hungarian artist Cerkahegyzo, his ability to turn pencils into intricate carvings shows just how extraordinary that ordinary item can become.
Taking inspiration from artist Dalton Ghetti, who also uses pencils to create his art, Cerkahegyzo utilizes tools such as needles, razor blades, sandpaper, files, polishing stones and all varieties of pencils to complete his amazing carvings.
A hobby that would drive most people crazy, Cerkahegyzo feels that his intricate pencil carvings are a form of relaxation for him as he sculpts the tiny #2s into items such as a set of keys, a bird cage or even a miniature coffee mug.
