South Carolina sculptor Matt Wilson makes amazing cutlery art. Matt is specialized in sculptures made out of found materials. This series of sculptures are made from recycled forks, knives and spoons, everyday objects everyone has at home.
Matt’s advice to aspiring upcyclers is to take the time to look at everyday objects from a different perspective and to be original.
I see an object somewhere, goodwill, scrap yard and I take it because it’s cool or because it was a piece that I was looking for. A lot of it is putting it in the shop and remembering where it is so that I can use it later on. The upcycled work I create is a testimony to the belief of conserving and appreciating our resources, so that the environment in which we live will continue to be an environment in which we desire to live.
We let you admire the incredible work of Matt!
