MAKING A SCULPTURE
The process of making a Scrap Sculpture
Before starting the creation of a Scrap Sculpture, our artists begin gathering ideas and drawing a concept. After having a concept the artists start collecting spare scrap metal parts.
Used car parts, motorcycle parts, spark plugs, nuts and bolts are collected for the Sculpture. Then the welding process begins and can, depending on size and details, take up to 4 months per piece.
After the scrap metal is welded into a master piece of art, a protective clear code is added to the Sculpture.
Idea, Concept & Design
It all begins with an idea of a new piece. The artists choose a character and draw a sketch.
Gathering Recyclable Scrap Metal Parts
After sketching a draft, the artists collect different recyclable spare parts, suitable for welding.
The Welding Process
When all scrap metal parts are collected the welding process begins. Depending on the size and detail of the sculpture, the whole process can take up to 4 months.
Slowly the Scrap Sculpture gets its shape. The body, arms and legs are recognizable.
Two different stages of a Life Size Terminator Sculpture in progress.
Polishing, Cleaning, Clear Code & Packing
After the welding process is completed, the sculpture is cleaned, polished and a protective clear code is added. After completion, the quality of each sculpture is checked and they are ready to be shipped out to our customers.
