Creatures at Nellies. Nervous Nellie's - Where Jam is Made

I happened upon this place this spring. While according to the sign's posted hours, it was open, there was no one to be seen, anywhere, which was a bit eerie. I explored anyways, with a few of my friends. How could we not? While Nervous Nellie's Jams and Jellies are sold in my hometown of Portland, no one had told me about the crazy sculpture that lurked about their point of origin. Made of scrap metal and found objects, the sculptures ranged in size from footstool-sized to gargantuan. Some appeared very "finished" while others were obviously in the process of construction. Half-hidden within the nearby woods and littered across the yard were some of the most bizarre and wonderful concoctions of industrial debris I have ever seen.
