If people were to think about nail sculptures, something industrial and masculine would most likely come to mind. Instead, the pieces are much more fluid and abstract than that. While some of the designs do showcase the hardware explicitly, other times the nail sculptures are much more ambivalent. In many cases, people will be shocked to learn that they were created using only nails.

Created by John Bisbee, the nail sculptures come in many shapes and sizes. Some form delicate walls while others are simply nailed to the wall. About his nail sculptures, Bisbee tells American Craft, "A nail, like a line, can and will do almost anything. What can’t you draw with a line? The nail is just my line."
