We came, we saw and we were mesmerised by these intricate art pieces by London artist Dan Rawlings.
He creates detailed artwork from pieces of scrap metal and farm equipment, using sentimental objects to help symbolise a time when things were simpler.
He especially puts emphasis on one rather unusual object - a hand saw.

However, you definitely will not be cutting anything with this tool as Dan manages to carve serene scenes into the metal tool. The beautiful and intricate end result has a pretty mind-blowing effect.
So, how exactly did Dan come around to the idea of using saw’s as his canvas? He explains it was all a ‘happy accident’. As after helping out his Grandfather to patch up a door using scrap metal he discovered a antique saw and creatively recognised his opportunity.
Dan’s work is currently being displayed at East London’s, Curious Duke Gallery in Dan’s first ever UK solo show “Untranslated”.
