Andrew Smith

Lehi, UT,

ANDREW SMITH DREAMS about finding old junk. In one recurring dream, he discovers an abandoned mill loaded with old gears and equipment. In another, there’s a barn full of wheels, gumball machines, and stoves. In each of these dreams, he responds the same way: He can’t wait to get the stuff home. Real life and dreams merge in Smith’s life. A resident of Lehi, Utah, Smith makes his living sculpting figures from scrap metal and machine parts. Some make noise, pump water, or chime the hour. One has a tornado inside it, created with a fan and a fountain mister. Most contain motors or serve practical functions like holding up lights, aquariums, or weathervanes. Each of them is one of a kind. And each begins with the arbitrary welding together of a few scraps or bolts.
