Artist Turns Old Keys and Coins into Sculptures

Although the rest of us may throw away old keys, the Australian artist Moerkey puts them and old coins to beautiful use. He welds them together into sculptures that take on new forms while retaining their original visual imprints. He explains how he got started with this medium:

I'm a bit of a hoarder and searched around for all those old keys and copper wire, that were no longer needed, and got creative with them as well. I've progressed from making spheres, to footballs and bowls as well as angles and brooches.

You can see more photos on his Facebook page or buy his work on Etsy.

Many of his works make for impressive lamps!
