Corbett Automotive Sculptures
A well executed
model would be, in my eyes, considered an art piece. It would go
beyond being just a scale model, especially once you have scratch
built 95% of your project, and the detail is uncompromised.
Corbett's sculptures. While they are not a model per se',
and probably not to scale (who cares?), they still display an
outstanding automotive piece on their own.
Made from parts of machines, primarily automotive, these art pieces
have a facination that keeps you looking at them for an hour.
Each one is a visual discovery of all the various parts, what
they are, and how they were incorporated into the desgn. Each
sculpture has it's own character, like a snapshot out of time.
The way the tires are ovals, rather than a static round object,
gives you the idea that the vehicle is actually moving. Adding
a driver (or rider) is the icing on the cake. These sculptures
are acton packed !
features some of Corbett's work, as well as his own site. Check
out the images, you won't be disapointed. You may even think twice
the next time you go to throw away that old wheel bearing.
