Some of these are sound sculptures and others are water-flowing sculptures and some move by wind.

Leo Sewell grew up near a dump. He has played with junk now for fifty years and has developed his own assemblage technique. His works are collected by corporations, museums and individuals throughout the world. Leo continues to cull the refuse of Philadelphia out of which he fashions pieces of all sizes, from a life-size house cat to a 40 foot installation.
His sculptures are composed of recognizable objects of plastic, metal and wood. These objects are chosen for their color, shape, texture, durability and patina; then they are assembled using nails, bolts, and screws. The outdoor sculptures are constructed of stainless steel, brass, or aluminum found objects which are welded together.

Kyle and Keith O’Brian – New Wave Art Palettes
It began in an art studio over a decade ago. Our dad had been painting for years, and in the corner of his studio was a graveyard of sorts where old artist palettes were put to rest. Some were heavy or awkward to hold, causing pain in the hand, thumb, and wrist; others were poorly made. The answer for him involved a free afternoon and a trip to the lumber yard.
Years later, with our combined efforts, a product was designed for all artists. New shapes were created and old shapes were refined around the original three point design, with emphasis on comfort, quality and functionality.
