French Artisan Takes Recycled Metal to the Dark Side with an Awesome Darth Vader Bust

French artisan Alain Bellino  took his craft to the dark side when he welded a number of leftover metal pieces together to create this surprisingly realistic Darth Vader  bust. Bellino saves and restores a variety of items – from chandeliers to sculptures to tea sets to door knockers – and his handmade Vader sculpture is made of everything but the kitchen sink (including two recycled spoons for the eyes and an entire helmet of decorative ornaments). If you’re impressed with Bellino’s Star Wars tribute, check out his online portfolio  for a look at his other creations – which include a chrome skull, a lamp made of out forks and spoons, and even a model of the Statue of Liberty!
