What materials are your sculptures made from?
All sculptures are made from real car parts, motorcycle parts and all different kinds of recycled scrap metal. The artists use thousands of smaller parts such as spark plugs, screws, nails, nuts and bolts. On bigger sculptures the artists use even bigger parts like car engine parts and sheet metal. The materials used are basically 100% metal but can occasionally contain minimal amounts of ceramic or copper. We use only Non-toxic materials.
Can I have a sculpture custom made?
Scrap Sculptures offers its customers the exclusive service of custom made sculptures. You choose the character and size of you sculpture and will be an active part of the creation of a custom made sculpture. Please visit our custom projects page for more detailed information.
How often do you make new sculptures?
Our artists work on scrap sculptures all the time so we are able a large amount of sculptures in stock. We are trying our best to keep all scrap sculptures available for purchase at any time. If a sculpture is listed as "out of stock", it is still possible for you to get it. Please just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get right back to you.
Are the sculptures suitable for children?
Our sculptures are no toys.They are intended for static display and exhibition use only. While care is taken to dull edges and remove hazards the nature of the materials used can result in pointed edges and occasionally sharp metal. Many sculptures especially the large variety can be very heavy and care should be taken to position the sculpture in a safe place.
Do you accept wholesale inquiries?
For all wholesale inquiries please contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you with your request.
Are all the photos on your site genuine?
Most photographs on our site are taken by a Scrap Sculptures staff member. Some of our photos are taken by our artist and work shop members.
Will my sculpture look exactly like the one om the picture?
All our sculptures are hand made and each sculpture is unique. Even though we try to keep the sculptures as close to the photographs as possible, From time to time some sculptures will have a variation and the sculpture you receive might have a very small difference.
Is it possible to keep my sculpture outside?
We advise our customers to keep the sculpture inside, if you prefer a weathered effect then the sculpture can be placed outside. All sculptures are coated with several layers of clear acrylic lacquer and this will protect the sculpture and resist corrosion. Over time this protection may need to be reapplied and the lacquer is available in a convenient spray can.
