As the snow fell outside in early December, a new and unusual species of beetle appeared in my shop. Rustic and primitive, each beetle has its own unique personality.

It is not every day you find a tartan beetle crawling about. If left out in the weather this guy will eventually rust.

This beetle is about 6” long and about 5” to the top of its curling antenna. His wing casings were made from an old picnic cooler.

These beetles were created using old serving spoons. I hand cut and shaped the wing casings out of old and rusty cans that have retained some of their original colors and patterned metal .

You can see more of my twisted art on my shop’s main page:

My sculptures are made using as much re-claimed, re-purposed, salvaged and found materials as possible. I hope to make the world a little better place, turning unwanted junk into art.

I will be happy to ship to other countries not listed below, but the shipping costs will depend upon where it’s to be shipped.

I will be glad to combine shipping when possible; all depending upon what items would be shipped together. Contact me and we will figure it out.

If you have interest in some cool vintage, I will combine shipping where possible with these two vintage shops:
