While in college, artist John Bisbee was scavenging in an abandoned house looking for items to incorporate into a series of found-object sculptures when he kicked over a bucket of old rusty nails.

For nearly three decades, Bisbee has welded and forged 12-inch spikes under the mantra, “Only nails, always different.” He shares with American Craft, “A nail, like a line, can and will do almost anything. What can’t you draw with a line? The nail is just my line.”
