I’m passionate about capturing the form and character of each animal I create and being able to give the recycled metal another life after they have been sent to the scrap heap.
Based in country Western Australia, Jordan Sprigg uses recycled metals found from machinery and scrap heaps. The objects he produces range from dragonflies, owls and bees, to larger scale sharks, lizards, kangaroos and even life sized horses.
The scrap iron sculptures are purposely left in their rusted state to highlight the age of the metal and the history of each piece. From springs, gears, bearings and nuts to bolts, shovels, pliers and saws, the list is endless as to what the artist makes use of in his work.
Understanding and appreciation of these timeworn parts of a past life allows space for creation of a new life in their current composition.
Jordan Sprigg’s works are held in the collections of Wesley College and the Narembeen Shire.
Exhibiting at Sculpture by the Sea for the first time in 2017 gained the artist wide spread recognition and respect for his work.
