You won't see this at your local drive up window very often.
Yard Art,Welded Art,Garden Junk,Recycled Art

Rattlesnake and Ostrich made from found and recycled material.
Snake made from rebar, valve springs, pipe, nails, grease gun spring. Light grease gun spring allows head to bobble in the breeze.

Ostrich body made from Mitsubishi wheel rims. Wings are plow blade and rake. Legs are rebar and Yamaha bike shocks. Head made with pieces of exhaust pipe. Eyes are cotton picker gears. Tail is a hay fork.

Sometimes when I weld things together I get results I didn't plan on. With a breeze blowing and my tin foil hat on I swear I hear the Born to be Wild tune coming out of the wheel rims and assorted pieces.

Nice job on the sculptures but they are not causing the music. I too hear Steppenwolf whenever I wear a foil hat.

Gosh, it makes me want to don a tinfoil hat if that is the creativeness that results from it! I love them both. I can imagine the ostrich causing quite a stir in my urban backyard. he-he I love the rattler too. He'd feel right at home with my Screech and Quackers (2 birds made from metal junk that I bought since I can't weld).

This is Screech

And this is Quackers

I love those. They look just perfect in the yard. So it's the tin foil hat that makes it all work? Hmmm, might have to try that too!
