|Nuts and Bolts, by Christopher.|
Although most hardware art is quite frivolous, there are those who take it very seriously, usually with welding torch in hand. Much of the nuts and bolts art done today involves solder or (more often) simply a heavy duty glue (much like Super Glue). For larger pieces, and those intended for outdoors, the "glue" holding them all together needs to be made of stronger stuff.
