Animal-loving artist Dean Patman creates cutesy creature sculptures out of various recycled materials. Many of these scrap metal artworks are modeled after birds, though Patman has also created a few metallic reptiles and insects.

Some of the materials used in this sculpture series include pieces of cutlery, bed post ends and pins. Patman bends forks to create legs, and uses spoons for wings. Pins become antennas, and small pieces of wood are used for animal torsos. These eco-friendly artworks are like tiny tributes to wildlife. Patman’s critters are so realistic and detailed that art fans will need to do a double take to be sure they aren’t real live animals.

These sculptures will delight animal lovers and art buffs alike.
