Man Makes Stunning Animal Sculptures From Driftwood And Scrap Metal

I love people who can take materials that many would consider junk and transform them into beautiful works of art. Sculptor Jason Waldron collects driftwood and reclaimed metal to make sculptures that come to life.

He forages for materials around his home in Central Oregon, finding weathered and beaten wood and metal in the wilderness or in junk yards. With the recycled materials he creates animals, such as horses and birds, that are dynamic and exciting to look at. They may be made from old and discarded items, but they spring to life thanks to Waldron’s skill.

For his stunning sculpture of a horse, he used reclaimed pieces of weathered metal and foraged weathered pieces of high desert wood.

The wood included pieces of Manzanita, Juniper, Sage, and Pine.

While sculpting, he carefully selects and places the pieces of wood to give dimension, color and depth to the work.

The final piece measures roughly 5 feet wide by 3 feet 6 inches tall by 18 inches deep.

Waldron’s sculpture of an eagle is equally impressive.

Again, he constructed it from foraged, weathered pieces of high desert wood.

Here’s the spectacular finished piece!

Here’s an elephant.

A duck.

A woman.

A lion.

A free-standing eagle with folded wings…

And an eagle with soaring wings.

It’s obvious that Waldron puts a lot of time and effort into every piece he makes. They are truly fascinating to look at.
