One man's trash is another man's...sculpture? This twist on the age-old saying is the underlying philosophy of Randy Schwartz, a San Antonio-based artist who sees junkyards as gold mines. Using 99% scrap metal and old engine parts, Schwartz makes objects ranging from the practical - wine racks and business card holders - to the whimsical - sculptures of cowboys and motorcycles.schwartz-cowoby-metal.jpg

Schwartz gets a bit more abstract as well, writing: " My goal is to capture all the shapes of man's imagination through metal."

Schwartz sells his work through his website, and also takes on custom orders, saying: " I look forward to building your dreams."
