After spending weeks  dedicated to locate suitable pieces, James meticulously cleans every part  and welds them together.

He said: "I was  working in a warehouse of scrap and a guy I know, that races stock cars,  showed me a Trophy winner, "Fact with levers of change."

 

"I looked at it and I  thought that I could do a much better job so I started making my own  sculptures."

"After a period of  time, people began to become more and more into what I was doing and now  what do I with my life, is a dream come to reality."

"On average, each  piece takes a little over two weeks of work, but the larger pieces can take  much longer, he says.

James says that  welding of the parts, and the construction of the sculpture is not what  consumes most time of the artist.

 

"Often the longest part of  the process is finding old parts suitable for sculpture."
