Very cool link, snez. Thanks. This guy must live near a coast somewhere, as most of his stuff is sea life. But my favorite is this really cool toucan.

Wow, is that ever not what I was expecting when I clicked. I must own one of these gorgeous things. Thanks for the link.

This link made my day. Thank you! I can't wait to share it with a housemate, who's an ex-sculptor. And the next time I see a hubcap lying near the street, you can bet I'll stop for it.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

Damn shame the Dollar/Pound exchange rate is decidedly _not_ in my favor.

Amazing stuff. I want one, preferably with a hubcap diamond star halo.

If I had enough money, I'd commission one with moving body parts. Can you just picture it? Giant Robot meets hubcaps!

excellent stuff, thanks snez. It's great to see people become creative with recycling!

snez, great link. I'm with frykitty - definitely not what I expected from a hubcap art site. Gorgeous stuff!

Yay! Brighton in the MeFi Area! (again).

Ufez is right. Tol, the artist, is down here on the south coast of England & these are part of the scenery round here cropping up in a fair few bars &c.

This guy could definitely sell his work for a lot more. I can imagine that swordfish in some CEO's office for an easy couple of ten thousand pounds/american. He needs a dealer, stat!

Awesome!! Thanks for the link. Those are just truly amazing. Now I have to go look at all those old hubcaps I have in the storage shed in a whole new light. :D

How riveting. These are really beautiful. The seahorse is my favorite.
