They Call Him the Wrench Man
We are always looking for ways to make cool stuff with out tools. But, how about making cool stuff out of tools! A scupltor in Australia has found a new life for old, rusted wrenches that would give Michelangelo Buonarroti a run for his money. Not sure who Michelangelo Buonarroti is, you might recognize his work by the picture.
John Piccoli began creating his sculptors over 30 years ago for his small garden by using the wrenches he had collected. Fast-forward to today he is creating large statues and museum quality art pieces in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.
Not only is John extremely talented, but he is also a Polio survivor who has been wheel-chair bound since 8 years old. You may wonder how he is able to create these sculptors that are life-like in size and shape!
John’s custom workshop is can work in 3 dimensions with the use of a cross-over gantry crane and several block and tackles at allow him to work at chair level.
Hopefully looking at these pictures will help inspire you to create something beautiful out of un-used tools! We would love to see what you come up with.
