We’re going nuts — and bolts, over these wild creations by “heavy metal artist” Tammy Roy, who proves one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure. The Wisconsin mother of three and former graphic designer traded-in working with fonts and ink samples to pick up a welding torch and make these bowls out of found hardware. She heads to industrial dumpsters and scrapyards to find discarded metal materials to use for the bowls and from the finished product, we see that she was successful. Just don’t try to eat cereal out of them unless you want to lose all of your milk.
