Uh-oh, Nick better up his game if he wants to hold on to Mallory, because those are way nicer than his garbage sculptures!

Ha! At 7'3" / 2.2m that awesome samurai at the bottom of the page would make a very eye catching addition to my garden!

Pretty cool, I've seen some of this type of work here and there and I've always thought it was a creative use of leftover items that people don't want. At least this junk is staying out of the landfills and being admired by everyday folks. =)

I guess it was junk, and now its not junk. As art, my personal preference would be that junk remains junk and does not become not junk. If the word junk was eliminated from the narrative, would this still be interesting? Yes. Would it be as interesting? No. If you love junk, you don't make it not junk. B-, future accession material.
