Walking outside, you’ve probably passed countless pieces of dead, gnarled wood and bits of corroded old boards.
You’ve probably passed some rusty pieces of scrap metal, too, and more than likely, you didn’t give them a second glance. It’s just junk, right?
Not if you see it the way artist Jason Waldron does. He knows that even the most humble of junk can, with the right care, turn into something beautiful and new.
Jason uses scrap wood and metal, most of it collected right off the ground around his home in Central Oregon. He turns them into sinuous, rippling sculptures of animals and humans that seem ready to burst into motion at any second.
And for being made of many different parts, they’re remarkably seamless.
His work shows his deep love of nature and wildlife, and that’s also reflected in the fact that his work is made completely of found and recycled materials, making them eco-friendly, as well.
Check out his amazing sculptures below, and you might just find yourself looking at a twisted old stick a little differently on your next walk outside!
