Ammuniton Art


A local artist decided to make some eagle sculptures using fired
cartridge cases. He has done them in several sizes, as shown in the
photo, which I estimate to be about 14 inches wide, 20 inches and 30
inches. Cases used are many different calibers, .50 BMG down to .22
rimfires, and he selects ones with some age patina and bright clean
cases and some nickeled cases for the desired colors.

He took them to a gun show to get a feel for interest, and I don’t
think he has firm prices established yet, but as I recall he mentioned
something like $450 for a small one and $1,500 and $5,000 for larger
ones with the largest one not for sale.

Anyway, after seeing some cute little toy type things made from
cartridges or “trench art” I though this was a much higher level of
artistry and worth sharing here.[
