While most of us consider scrap metals useless and throw these objects in trash, Wales-based sculptor John Brown brilliantly transforms these unused materials into intricate bird and bug sculptures. At first glance, you can’t figure out that these are actually made out of spare pieces of metal. However with salvaged materials like nails and bicycle chains, the artistic sculptor has managed to create highly-detailed anatomy of beautiful and delicate creatures.
Using his imagination and creativity, Brown has managed to convert his findings into breathtaking colorful figures of butterflies, birds and insects. The various scrap bits are assembled by welding technique to recreate legs, wings, antennas and bodies of different insects. Each sculpt is three-dimensional and depicts the true nature of insects and birds through unusual but profound art.
Although rusty metal pieces are used to create these different insect and bird species, but the details of their body structure are perfectly fine. For instance, wings of butterfly and other insects are actually designed as thin as of realistic bugs. Even bird sculptures are contrived after carefully sketching every angle; the whole process must have taken a great deal of time.
After welding each piece together, Brown further completes the sculpture by painting its wings with oil paint. He has closely replicated the making of classes such as the Holly Blue and Red Admiral butterflies. Every minute detail of the actual species are kept in mind while creating these realistic models.
Available for price range between $53-$604, these attractive pieces of metal can be purchased online from Etsy shop GreenHandSculpture. Sadly, the shop is offline for the festive season. If you are willing to bring these welded insects and birds to your home, then you can place your orders after 4th January 2016.
