Transforming unlikely pieces of scrap metal into significant works of art - giving new life to things we throw away - is an accessible, creative, and fulfilling activity. This book describes and illustrates the concerns and techniques involved in making this kind of sculpture, looking behind the work at the richness and diversity of an area of sculpture that deserves to be far better known.
