Stainless Steel

What happens when a custom DeLorean builder and a master stainless steel fabricator acquire not one, but three wrecked DeLoreans? They work together to modify and combine the broken three to create one of the most awesome stretch limousines we’ve ever seen.

Head over to the UK DeLorean Owners Club forum for lots of process photos.

We just have one question: What happens when the DeLorean Limo reaches 88 mph?

Intricate Calligraphic Steel Sculptures by  Zheng Lu

Composed of more than 20,000 Chinese characters, these intricate sculptures by Zheng Lu are soft and seamless in appearance despite their stainless steel make-up. The characters used are all chosen from Chinese texts and poems. For example, the sculpture that looks like a splash of water is cunningly crafted from the lines of the poem Wan Zhi Shui (Playing With Water) written by the Tang Dynasty poet Bai Juyi. This playfulness with details can be seen throughout Lu’s work. When discussing the use of one of the most original Chinese fonts in a specific piece, he said, “You would not figure that out from a distant view. Otherwise, it would not be fun.”

The contemporary Chinese sculptor has been interested in calligraphy for a long time. He grew up in a literary family with a strong traditional Chinese intellectual background and his father made him take up the practice of calligraphy when he was still very young. This skill is now apparent in much of his artwork and the inclusion of meaningful text brings a unique aesthetic and significance to Lu’s already elegant sculptures. Txt Via MMM

New Knoxville, Ohio-based artist Gary Hovey sees silverware as much more than household utensils that simply sit in a draw when they aren’t in use. Hovey instead uses silverware - forks, knives and spoons alike - to create elaborate stainless steel animals sculptures.

“Upon first glance, the many wildlife figures, like birds, fish, and bears, have realistic shapes. It is only upon closer inspection that the details and texture of the materials become more clear. Each piece of flatware contributes unique qualities: fork prongs create layers of feathers and fur; spoons add rounded curves; and knives produce a shiny flat surface.”

These awesomely shiny creatures are the work of British Columbia-based metal sculpture Kevin Stone. He uses mirror-polished stainless steel to create stunning, large-scale sculptures of real animals and mythical creatures, including incredible eagles and dazzling dragons.

Stone spent nearly two years working on a magnificent coiled dragon sculpture for the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, BC. It measured 35 feet long by 14 feet wide by 12 feet high, and weighed a whopping 6,000 pounds. River Rock Casino Resort commissioned the sculpture to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.
