Scott Nelles pronounced {nell-ess} creates cast bronze sculpture by using the trades of industry. Much of the inspiration for his work actually comes from the process in which he makes it. Cast metal Toy cars, boats, and airplanes take him back to his childhood in Detroit where his father, a manufacturers representative would take Scott on factory tours. The dramatic sight and heat of molten metal became a part of his soul and the excitement of the foundry process has never left him.

Many people are aware of the" lost wax method" of creating bronze castings and sculpture. Scott Nelles on the other hand creates his art by using the "sand casting method". This process is seldom used in the arts and very few are aware of it's possibilities. Nelles has tried to take advantage of his process to express his artistic visions and also make his art more available to the public.
