Fantastic Nail Sculptures by John Bisbee

Artist John Bisbee's 30-year career of using nails as an art medium was inspired by an experience he had while in college. Bisbee was exploring an abandoned house to see what materials he could repurpose, when he knocked over a bucket of rusted nails and found that they had fused together in the shape of the container. Since then, he's used nails to make sculpture, including the fabulous works of art seen here.

Bisbee said in an interview, “A nail, like a line, can and will do almost anything. What can’t you draw with a line? The nail is just my line.”

Read an interview with the artist at American Craft (page 40) and visit his website to see additional works.
