Check out these cool scrap metal sculptures

Our friends over at Bored Panda ran this story about a clever sculptor that makes wildlife from pieces of scrap metal.

“I live in rural West Wales. This peaceful part of the country is known for being a precious habitat for its native wildlife, which is of constant inspiration to me.” Says JK Brown of Green Hand Sculpture

“For as long as I can remember I have loved to watch animals (especially in the wild) and for as long as I can remember I have been drawing, making and creating as a way of celebrating the beauty of nature. Often when I’m out walking I pick up fragments of metal that have been thrown away.” JK continues, 

“Sometimes fly-tipped or washed up on beaches, I patiently reassemble these pieces into monuments to the natural world around me: a habitat that is becoming increasingly fragmented. I find that my own process of reversing this fragmentation is, for me, a calming antidote to the madness of endless consumption.”
