Made from old bike parts

Edouard Martinet’s enchanting metal animal sculptures are made from old bike parts


The French artist created his jolly running ostrich by securing the assorted metal parts with a few screws and opted not to use a welding iron. His pigeon and a very cute robin sculpture appear to share some gossip before taking a flight. A shrimp made from metal spoons and other recycled kitchen elements has plenty of antennas made from – you guessed it – radio antennas.


A rusty blue fish is another of Martinets meticulously crafted sea creatures. And his cute baby wasp seems to be pleasantly sleeping. Sustainable, detailed, hand-made and yet sturdy, Martinets recycled metal animals will hopefully never see extinction.
