Sculpting with recycled metals with Jordan Sprigg

Based in country Western Australia, Sprigg uses recycled metals found from retired machinery, scrap heaps and clearance sales.

Some of the pieces found dating over 100 years old and used by the earliest settlers of Western Australia. The objects he produces range from dragonflies, owls and seahorses, to larger scale sharks, eagles and even horses.⁠

The scrap iron sculptures are purposely left in their rusted state to highlight the age of the metal and the history of each piece.

From springs, gears, bearings and nuts to bolts, shovels, pliers and saws, the list is endless as to what the artist makes use of in his work. Understanding and appreciation of these timeworn parts of a past life allow space for the creation of a new life in their current composition.⁠
