Check out these amazing sculptures an artist built using broken spoons, forks and other utensils:
What do you do when you come across an old or broken utensil like fork, spoons, old car parts, kitchen knives and other garbages? For most of us, the first thing that comes to our mind is how to dispose and get rid of them.
However, it is not the same case with this artisan Brian Mock, an American artist who uses these scrap metals to create spectacular works of art. This extraordinarily gifted artist who lives in Oregon, USA, has been using his gift to explore several branches of fine art including woodcarving, drawing and painting.
He started at a tender age and has been able to develop his skills in recycling and up cycling old metal scraps, turning them into beautiful sculptures featuring nature and objects from our everyday life.
On his own, he learnt how to weld things together, then along the line he developed unbelievable skills in combination with his experience and weird imaginations. He makes fine sculptures of robots, human figures, animals and other customized objects that are both functional and decorative.
These fine sculptures are created completely from scrap metal objects like nails, coins, keys, knots, broken spanners, screw, bolt and many other old nonfunctional metal objects. Although he adds a little plastics sometimes, just to give his sculptures a fine colour.
He started doing this as a kind of hobby, but latter on he became so perfect that he decided to turn it into his full time job. Clearly he is making a lot of money from his craft as over 90 percent of the artworks displayed in these article have all been sold out. Brian's artworks are displayed in many art galleries all over New York. His clients include luxury hotel owners, international art collectors and museum keepers.
