Bolt poetry: Emotional Bolt Sculptures by Tobbe Malm

Six years ago, artist Vlad Artazov presented world with his interesting “Nail Art” series which creates unusually emotional sculptures using nail. Today, Oslo-based blacksmith and photographer Tobbe Malm tries to do the same thing with old farm bolts. These bolts had been lying there for a long time and they might well have continued to lie there until they had rusted away and returned to their original mineral form. Malm immediately recognized the wide caps and slender stems as having humanistic qualities so he gathered them up and proceeded to heat, forge, twist and bend them into shape in his studio. By doing this, Malm successfully gave these old bolt some human emotions: sorrow, joy, pain, warmth and humour. Check the whole collection “Bolt poetry” on his behance page.
