Portland-based artist Robert Jefferson Travis Pond builds stunning animal sculptures out of salvaged metal parts. To see how he does it, watch this time-lapse of him building his 14 foot long dragon sculpture.
This seemingly random assortment of metal dictates its future in a very fast and spontaneous manner. Although I control the welds, the individual objects refuse to be forced into form. The sculpture decides for itself what it will look like and when it is complete.
