The sci-fi, fantasy-inspired creatures on this page were created using vintage power tools, vacuum cleaners, scientific equipment, auto parts, bike parts, boat parts, kitchenware and many objects that I have no idea of their original purposes. See if you can figure out the components that make up each piece.
Though some of the creatures below have found homes, many are still available. If you have any questions or if you are interested in purchasing, feel free to let me know.
This creature is now hanging in the office of a friend who enjoys scuba diving.

Tal Avitzur is an assemblage artist whose found-object sculptures are created from vintage items collected from the auto, aircraft and marine salvage yards of Southern California. Many of his fantasy-themed, mixed-media sculptures are heavily influenced by the science fiction, mythology and comic books of his youth. Tal's unique, whimsical, one-of-a-kind, steampunk-like art can be found in the homes, offices and man-caves of collectors who embrace their inner child. Tal's studio, workshop and gallery is located in Santa Barbara, California and is a short drive from Los Angeles, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties.
