Some artists have a fantastic talent to see art where other people may see trash, and Matt Wilson is one of them. Based in South Carolina, Wilson uses old silverware to create stunning sculptures of birds and other animals. He then connects the sculptures to pieces of wood to complete the work and we’re in love with the final result.
His art is rustic, minimalistic, and beautiful. It’s incredible to think that he can simply take old forks and spoons and then turn them into something artistic, but that’s exactly what inspires and motivates him. “The upcycled work I create is a testimony to the belief of conserving and appreciating our resources,” My Modern Met cited him.
You can see some of his sculptures below and find more on his Instagram page, where he has over 100k followers. He also sells the pieces, and you can get them on Etsy.
