Brian Mock’s Metal Sculptures Are Made from Recycled Materials

Portland, Oregon based sculptor, Brian Mock, creates elegantly crafted recycled metal sculptures. He welds materials like wing nuts, hinges, screws, nails, found sheet metal, car rotors, and more to create a variety of sculptural forms from figurative, to animal, to decorative, and functional.

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.

If you like what you see here, you should head on over to 360See Gallery, matter!,  Mock also has a number of reasonably priced items available on Etsy including some beautiful small dogs.
