Artist Turns Scrap Metal Into Incredible Sculptures

Inspired by the native wildlife in rural West Wales, artist and animal lover J. K. Brown creates incredibly detailed animal sculptures from fragments of discarded metal. He patiently reassembles these pieces into monuments to the natural world around him.

He have already created many wonderful metal models of birds, butterflies, horses and even dragons. The process, he says, is a calming antidote to the madness of endless consumption. Check out some of his work below in this post.
