Scrap metal and found metal gets new life!

This sculpture, depicting the beauty of the compassion of human hearts, bringing a vulnerable juvenile sea turtle out of the debris into a new clean future, was made exclusively from items that are normally discarded by others, or found lingering in our environment.  This piece well represents the work I do.  I take what would be regarded as salvage or scrap, and give it a new life as a thing of beauty to be appreciated for many years to come.  Whether it be an automated sculpture or a statue, I find peace of mind in being able to create art that not only adds beauty to our world by it's form, but also helps to contribute to keeping our world clean.  It is a very satisfying feeling to stand and consider all the pieces put into each sculpture and wonder where these may have ended up if not given a second chance at life. 

   Feel free to browse the various videos and photographs on our site and check out our items for sale on our SHOP page if you would like to own a piece of art that contributes to a cleaner Earth.   We'll be updating this site monthly.

WELCOME TO OUR IMAGINATION!

Florida native award-winning artist, Jean Claude Vanderfield,  produces fascinating moving sculptures from various items of found scrap metal and various salvaged machines.  Each sculpture integr​ates common items from practically any era, and uses them in a way that makes a moving metal sculpture!  from an late 1800's school desk iron decorations to a simple tablespoon, anything can end up having a whole new life as a new beautiful work of art.   Almost any idea is achievable with enough imagination and creativity.  Jean's extensive background in industrial automation coupled with his love of creating art, has produced many one-of-a-kind pieces, such as a man riding a bicycle with a rocket pack, birds-of-prey with moving wings and heads, dragons that breathe smoke, talk, move, and have glowing eyes, among other eye-catching sculptures.  

Automation

Some sculptures have many moving parts and features.  Like this beautiful dragon, who moves head, mouth, wings, and roars, talks, and breathes smoke.  He even has bluetooth integration!

Designing

Each sculpture is made from pieces differing from other sculptures.  No two are alike which means whatever you buy will be a one and only no matter where you are.

F4F Wildcat Fighter Plane Lamp

This awesome plane was made from a rare Navy towed sonar array salvaged piece(depressor assembly).  It has been made into this beautiful 1940's F4F Navy fighter plane with a motorized prop, and under wing LED reading lights that are dimmed and controlled by remote, and can even turn themselves off after you've gone to bed.  A true one-of-a-kind piece that you will not find anywhere else, probably in the world.

"One of my first sculptures in a show was this steampunk style 6-foot tall man peddling an old  bicycle.  I fittingly named the piece "Iron Will".  It took months of  thought and work, and a great many pieces of anything from car parts to cookie cutters in making this sculpture.  Since that show, I am constantly trying to find unique ideas with found items that can be transformed into a desirable and special sculpture for someone looking for something really different and intriguing."  

Jean Claude Vanderfield, sculptor

Making found scraps and upcycled metal into an object of beauty is a privilege and service to our community and earth.  We are thankful for the opportunity to do our part!*
