Creating art from scrap
  Sculpture fabricated from junked 1950 and 1960 auto parts  
Sculpture fabricated from junked 1950 and 1960 auto parts
Thursday, January 06, 2011

The 46-year-old Australian artist James Corbett, creates sculptures using salvaged old car parts. His sculptures are made of gears, spark plugs, exhausts, and radiators, anything that the artist can salvage.

The artist spends weeks dedicated to locating suitable pieces, then meticulously cleans every part and welds them together. French and British cars are James' favourites to retrieve.

The sculptor is exhibiting his work in the Gallery of John Davies in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, England, until December 19.
