Burnt Brass and the Pistonhead Army: Superb Sculptures for Shooters
Russ Chastain 03.16.16
Some weeks ago, I saw a picture of some impressive artwork made with cartridge cases. I shared it on my Facebook page and went on about my business. But it kept turning up, so I looked a little deeper.
Turns out, the guy who created it also makes a bunch of other metal art as well, much of it with a military, guns-a-blazin’ theme. He calls himself Tigger (as in TIG welding), and he’s clearly good at what he does.
They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but in this case it may be more than that. Anyhow, here are some things he has made from old cartridge cases.
He also makes larger sculptures of everyday hardware objects, many of which he calls his Pistonhead Army.
Expect to wait for your piece if you don’t buy something he’s already completed. He has spent as long as two weeks on one 50 BMG piece.
