Making Sculpture From Scrap Metal

Peter Parkinson

Transforming unlikely pieces of scrap metal into significant works of art - giving new life to things we throw away - is an accessible, creative, and fulfilling activity. This book describes and illustrates the concerns and techniques involved in making this kind of sculpture, looking behind the work at the richness and diversity of an area of sculpture that deserves to be far better known. Topics covered include the role and purpose of sculpture, the particular qualities of sculpture made from scrap metal, and the practical processes involved in its making. It also covers sources of scrap metal, identifying metals, reviewing metalworking techniques, creative approaches, different types of sculpture, and the making, finishing, and installation of pieces of sculpture.
