Nature Meets Metal in the Intricate Sculptures of Alan Williams

Every so often there’s something on the internet that makes us think we got into the wrong profession, especially when it’s  someone displaying a talent they’ve developed over the years with astoundingly beautiful results. These metal sculptures make us want to quit our jobs and devote our lives to learning such a gorgeous craft.

This video recently uploaded to Vimeo by director Ben Cox showcases the amazing sculptures created by English artist Alan Williams. Using some expert welding skills, a forge, and a great deal of recycled scrap metal, Williams brings all manner of creatures to life with incredible detail. The video also delves into how, as a child, Alan used to pick apart and re-attach toys in different ways which clearly lead to his current artistic career.

William’s work is absolutely breathtaking when you think about the work involved in shaping pieces of bicycle sprockets, chain, rebar, and any sort of reclaimed metal bits into what he envisions. We’re astonished at his remarkable ability to make such fluid and lifelike recreations of animals from such cold and rigid materials.

If you’re anything like us, you certainly want to see more of these creatures and thankfully, Williams’ website has a gallery of all his work with close-up shots of some of the finer points of each.

Which one of his creations would you like hanging on your wall? Do you think he’ll like this article enough to just send the squid one to me? Yeah, I also doubt it. But hey, let’s discuss how awesome these sculptures are in the comments below!
