Recycled metal turned into a Sponge Bob.

Metal T-Rex and TV Characters

Awesome place where the artist has created some unique metal objects. Really cool store, lots of entertaining spectacles. Be careful when you stop though, as the road is busy.

Some or all of the pieces may be for sale, but there seems to always be a cast of recycled material figures visible along the road and property tree line.

Metal characters.

Metal T-Rex

The cast of characters continues growing. Joining the T-Rex, Sponge Bob, the M & M characters, et al., is a chopper-riding biker babe. She has flowing bright red hair. Maybe because its summer -- but instead of leathers, she sports a bikini top.

How big is the chopper sculpture? When we went by, she dwarfed the real-life biker dudes who'd stopped for pics.

Metal T-Rex

The dinosaur has been joined by a Spongebob Squarepants (who went missing for more than a year, but has since been returned) and some M & M characters.

This is on Route 24, about 5 miles east of Millsboro and Route 113, 12 miles west of Rehoboth Beach and the junction with Route 1.
