City by the Bay 6 – Miniature cityscape by NancyDee Sculptures


I created this miniature 10x10cm cityscape from a yellow tile, flat pieces of metal and a brass-coloured stud that I found on the streets of Melbourne during my daily walks. It comes with a display stand.

I am a found object assemblage artist and jewellery designer, creating wall sculptures, 3D sculptures and brooches from the metal, wood, tiles and plastic that I pick up off the streets. My art is inspired by a strong interest in sustainability through repurposing and upcycling.

Many of my works are inspired by the Melbourne skyline, especially at sunrise and sunset. Often I try to incorporate ‘natural features’ – a bent nail that suggests a meandering river, rusted sheet metal that transforms into a cloud, or a broken tile that becomes a mountain.

My more abstract works are stimulated by the found objects themselves, which I often place in juxtaposition. At other times, I emphasise their rusted, scratched or variegated surfaces.

My hope is that this artwork makes you smile, and at the same time, reminds you of the 5Rs to help our planet: refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle.
