Summary

A guide to the contemporary art form of junk sculpture

So what is Junk Sculpture? Well, it's basically rubbish! Junk sculpture can be made from just about anything that has been thrown away, from coat hangers to Cadillacs. Some sculptors see junk as a fantastic source of otherwise expensive materials and a way of recycling and reusing the planet's resources.

Others see junk as a way of making art contemporary and thought-provoking by using modern or unusual materials, rather than classic sculpting materials such as bronze or marble. Whatever your opinion, the sculptures in this book are guaranteed to get you thinking about the things we throw away.

This series encourages young readers to evaluate all types of creativity and decide for themselves if they are worthy of the term "art". The series is a starting point for discussion about what art is. Each book looks at a type of art, shows practitioners and examples of their work, and has fun make-it-yourself projects.
