more #floorcore, per favor!!

it took us a while. but clé has finally joined everyone on instagram. and all we have to say about that is- what took us so long?

fun peeps. great photos. if you’re there, be sure to follow us-  @cletile

and speaking of tiles on instagram – are you tuned into lonny magazine’s newest craze, #floorcore?  it’s folks taking what i’d describe as shoe/floor selfies. come-on, there’s got to be a great monicker for that, right? toe-sies, footsies, floorsies? those aren’t so great-

but shoes coordinated with great tiled floors, that’s a tile envy bonanza! here’s a quick glance through #floorcore, the ones specifically featuring tiled floors, of course:

dalton ghetti…making a point.

remember when you were a kid and the simplest things were captivating?  sure, it all seems to evaporate with something called experience. but what if it didn’t?

it reminds me of a time when i overheard a young girl listening to her mom discuss the hiring of her new elementary school art teacher. the girl’s puzzled question was…why will we have an art teacher? will we forget how to draw?

dalton ghetti is someone for whom the world has remained fascinating. and he captures the details in works that use the least hi-tech provisions.

i imagine that first time viewers of dalton’s detailed sculptures either look away, not comprehending what they’ve just seen, or they can’t stop staring- in disbelief.

i’ve done both. but when it finally dawned on me – what i was staring at – i was hooked, captivated, enchanted. the world through dalton ghetti’s eyes is so simple and yet, so very, very fascinating.

dalton ghetti is an enviable artist. driven by a passion to create; not to sell, promote or gain fame.  he simply carves, sculpts, and refines the most overlooked – nearly archaic – instrument.  the pencil.

and even that’s an overstatement. dalton ghetti carves the roughly sharpened tip of tossed, lost and abandoned pencils. aside from a passion to create, his only other goal in making his transfixing art is to draw peoples attention to small things. 

thanks, dalton, for reminding us that magic can still be conjured from fascination, determination, skill and heart.
