The largest collection of Dave Channon Scraptures in the world!

First International Sculpture Day - Saturday, April 27 and 28 all day

Pleasure yourself with Scrapture - scrap metal sculptures that deliver rapture. Popeye is having a fling with Mermaid. Napoleon is complex. Will gorgeous Galatea kiss Mr. Toad the 8 foot fly gobbler? Will Detroitus the discus hurler ever ride Chariot Zero G? a dozen more uncanny creations - with animated attitude, personality and anatomically incorrect engineering. Many call it Delight Manufacturing. I call it Scrapture.

Unwind behind a tiny frog pond, a Yurt and many berry bushes. Relax while vegetables grow nearby. Let Dave's Scraptures weather the withering ravages of time instead of you. Some of those corroded implements are over 200 years old! They ignore gravity, use deceptive means of support, and appear dynamically imbalanced. They are funny. They are ready when you are. They can be had. Check out Dave's anarchic welding studio and five more locations near Phoenicia. You can always call (845) 688-2977 or email and drop by for a visit.

GALATEA World premiere in Phoenicia Festival of the Arts at Wellness Rx


     GALATEA   Is a scrapture by Dave Channon. In Ovid’s Metamorphosis, PYGMALION was a sculptor who created a statue of a woman so perfect that he fell in love with it, called it Galatea and dressed it in sensuous clothes. (Today it might be called Barbie.) But Galatea was hard and cold as stone. Obsessed and tormented with passion, he appealed to Venus to change Galatea into a real woman. Venus had sympathy and did. Pygmalion named Galatea after an ancient Greek forest nymph Naiad who presided over brooks, springs, fountains, swamps and bogs. Think freshwater Mermaid with legs and super powers. Cyclops loved her but she loved another. Cyclops crushed her other lover with a boulder.
     If you love Galatea let me know! If you must have her, you can for $10,000 including delivery & installation. No Cyclops boulders.     (845) 688-2977
