65 Scrap Metal Sculptures

From Jet-Transforming Robots to Upcycled Jurassic Creatures

— November 7, 2012 — Eco
Creating scrap metal sculptures gives old materials a new purpose.

Combining pieces of old twisted and rusty metal into a brand new work of art saves those scraps from being cast away and lost forever in junk yards and dumpsters. With creations such as scrap metal monsters and ethereal recycled metal, home decor and art works become more intricate and detailed with the texture of the various metal elements that have been fused together to create them. With items such as scrap metal chairs and even scrap metal eco bikes, we get environmentally friendly designs that are functional and serve a purpose.

Scrap metal sculptures result in some of the coolest and most useful creations.
