Heavy Metal

I couldn't write it better than Christopher over at This is Colossal.com so I am reposting what he wrote about Brian Mock who is, in Christopher's words, a Portland-based sculptor who is a welding virtuoso!  

Since this is music month I am posting all of his guitar sculptures, but he makes lots of beautiful sculptures so if you like these also check out his WebsiteFacebook or Etsy page.

Christopher wrote the following : 

Portland-based sculptor Brian Mock turned hundreds of discarded nuts, bolts, hinges, and forks into life-size dogs, birds, and even faithful replicas of doubleneck Gibson electric guitars. Mock says of his work:

I am intrigued by the challenge of creating an entirely unique piece from an eclectic collection of discarded objects. Giving these old, common items a new and extraordinary life as one sculpture is an artistically challenging yet gratifying process. This type of work is also designed to be highly interactive and prompt viewers to question the reality of what they see. Audience reactions fuel my motivation.
They're full of nuts and bolts, screws and washers so of course they caught our eye, but really there is so much more in them - a lot of creative & interesting things.  

Take a look at his Gibsons and Statocasters:

This one is 7 feet high!

These guitars ROCK!
