You won't find them indexed on EYB, but these amazing animal
sculptures made exclusively from knives, forks, and spoons are
worth a share nonetheless. The only thing more amazing than seeing
Ohio artist Gary Hovey's stunning work is learning that Gary has been challenged with the effects of
Parkinson's disease since 1994. Gary continues his art with the
help of family and friends to help move the pieces, but he still
does the metalwork himself.
level of detail in the sculptures is amazing. They range in size
from a few inches to several feet tall. You can see more of Gary's
work on his
website, where he notes that his goal is to ensure that "the
animal's appearance is appreciated first for its form. Then, on
closer inspection, the details of the forks, knives, and spoons
bring enjoyment on a whole new level."
These beauties surely up the ante on the spoon flowers and knife
dragonflies at the local craft fair.
