Creative Metal Recycling

Check out Eco-Art Creative Metal Recycling. I love this guy's work! Tim Pace uses cast-off, discarded and scrapped metals to create his unique sculptures. Tim likes to retain the shape of the original found object to keep it recognizable within the resulting artwork, like the shovels and clippers used to create the birds in this photo.

Eco-Art pieces range in size from objects that easily fit on the desktop to very tall items that can be displayed as garden art or home d├ęcor. I especially like the Reading Mantis displayed outside the Jackson-Madison County Library in Jackson, Tennessee.

I have seen things like this at craft shows! I have always thought this was pretty neat.

Great blog. This is a cool idea for recycling old products. I used to get some of my recycling ideas from the bottle depot in Calgary.

This has been a great blog. I have been trying to find a recycler. Do you know where I might be able to find one? Thanks.
