cast-off items another life for others to share again,” is what inspires Edward
in creating his metal sculptures. Recycling and creating art from scrap
material are appealing qualities of this art form. Using scrap iron, car
parts, farm plows, and horse shoes, he creates abstract and traditional
sculptures. Edward acquires his materials from salvage yards or through
donations by his friends. These constructions can take anywhere from one hour
to two days to build.
no formal training in the assembly of his sculptures and truly hasn’t tried art
in any other medium. His talent stems from growing up as the son of a farmer
who was a welder as well. As a child, Edward would weld second hand parts together
to create new tools and other objects. Just last year, family and friends
encouraged him to develop this talent further.
Edward’s sculptures can also be
found at the Monroe County Heritage Museum in Monroeville, Alabama.
