It is crazy to think that all of Stacey Lee Weber’s complex sculptures were created using actual coins. Considering that many of her artworks look fairly lifelike, it is easy to see why they would boggle your mind. For instance, she hammered copper American pennies into a ribbon and flag -- both of which happen to look like they are moving in the wind.

Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, Stacey Lee Weber is currently based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her passion doesn’t just lie in art made from coins; she finds deeper meaning in each piece she creates by adhering to a blue collar theme. Basically, as Stacey Lee Weber puts it herself, her work "celebrates working class families which make up the heart of American culture."
