“Hundreds of carved figures and pieces of old scrap perform an incredible choreography to haunting music and synchronised light, telling the funny and tragic stories of the human spirit as it struggles against the relentless circles of life and death.”

I went to this exhibition in Glasgow several years ago, it was one of the most important things that inspired me to get into metalwork. Its a kinetic theatre performance of mechanical sculptures made from scrap metal based on stories and myths from old Russia. Here is a link to the official website. The artist is Eduard Bersudsky, absolute genius.  He has also created a giant mechanical clock in the Edinburgh museum, in the same style and theme as this but on a much larger scale.

At black fox we’re really interested in working with scrap metal, i think we could produce some really interesting garden sculptures. Phiz found an abandoned bike wheel yesterday, maybe this could be the start of something!
