Tiny Things for the World Cup

Since I recently mentioned Dalton Ghetti and his amazingly tiny lead sculptures, I feel it's only appropriate that I follow it up with another jaw dropping miniature creation.

Artist Diem Cheu was commissioned by Wieden + Kennedy to carve 66 crayons for Nike's World Cup promotion. Eleven recipients received these precious boxes. She had 18 days to make around to carve almost 70 crayons!

Be sure to check out her other tiny crayon treasures—for $450 you can own your own. And don't miss the gallery on her website. I think one of these plates would look stellar on my wall—'bout time to replace that dinner plate!
