I'm an enormous fan of Jud Turner, a sculptor in Eugene, OR, where many of his pieces - welded from scrap motorcycle parts - are on display, like this triceratops at the Ninkasi Brewing Company.
(the heart of the triceratops - AKA "The Tricerahops" - is filled with the ashes of Turner's sorely missed studio cat Maggert)
Just as impressive is Dakuwaqa, a "9 foot long chrome megalodon, also made from recycled motorcycle parts."
As wildfires have ripped through the Pacific Northwest, some of Turner's sculptures have been lost in flames, like his manic Cheshire Cat, lost along with its owners home in Blue River last week.
