Matt Wilson Transforms Old Cutlery Intro Spectacular Bird Sculptures

When Matt Wilson decided to integrate elements of welding into his art, a whole new world of different possibilities opened up to him. He started using old cutlery in an attempt to put an eco-friendly twist on his art, and many of his creations take inspiration from the amazing world of birds.

Airtight Artwork founder Matt Wilson grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, and explored his passion for art at the Fine Arts Center of Greenville during his time in high school. These classes inspired him to pursue an art degree, and he experimented with many art forms over the years before discovering his passion for welding.

At first, Wilson’s goal was to build metal models of ships, but he broadened his horizons as the years went by. He started introducing natural elements into his art, and his amazing sculptures started taking the shape of many different animals, especially birds.

Wilson uses recycled and organic materials in his work, and his spectacular sculptures are breathing new life into old and neglected forks, spoons, and knives.

“My goal as an artist is to make artwork unlike art people have seen, while at the same time recognizable in the identity of everyday materials. I only hope the sculptures will inspire others to appreciate the simple, neglected items from which my creations are born,” he explains on his official website.
