Damon Drummond aka Ultrajunk is a found object metal artist from Akron, Ohio, USA. His passions are robots, rayguns, lamps, and anything with a vintage science fiction or future Victoran style. From kitchen stove burners, bicycle headlights, old table legs, and other odds and ends, Drummond’s creations depend entirely on his daily finds at the scrap yard.
“I am lucky to live very close to 2 salvage scrap yards which I visit every day and scrounge through piles of salvaged metal and rusty goodness. You would not believe what gets scrapped. There is new junk every day so I never get tired of going there.”
