Some say, “Someone's junk is another's treasure.” Proving the validity of this quote is Joe Pogan's metal animal sculptures. Joe Pogan is an artist who collects junk to create art, but he uses a specific kind of junk, not your everyday garbage junk. He uses nails, clamps, coins and anything metal-based.

Pogan's metal animal sculptures are made with extreme care, and they all show that art can be made out of simple everyday things. These objects are put together to form an animal. And it's not one of those abstract pieces of art in which people have meshed a bunch of things together--you can actually tell what animal these little screws, nails and locks form, such as an owl, fish or bird.
