Animals Sculptured with Recycled and Upcycled Metal

The following statement from British Artist and Upcycle + Recycle Sculptor Alan Williams, goes a long way to explaining how he started in his craft, "I started making things when I was a young lad using old toys and a tube of glue. Now it's grinders and welders".  Amazing talent is needed to visualise a form, an animal, in most of the cases below and then using pre-shaped recycled metals to build and give them life.  We have added detailed pictures so that you can appreciate the artistry that went into these beautifully proportioned creatures.
