Scissors confiscated by the TSA transformed into amazing spider sculptures by Christopher Locke

Austin, Texas-based sculptor and ceramic artist Christopher Locke reutilizes scissors confiscated by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) in airport terminals to shape up incredible spider sculptures.

Each year, the Transportation Security Administration confiscates over 8 million items, including guns, knives, narcotics, cuticle scissors, mousse, pudding, and bottled water. Although the TSA website says scissors with blades less than four inches are allowed on airplanes, the individual officers conducting the screening have the authority to confiscate anything they think could be used as a weapon. As a result, countless pairs of scissors are confiscated daily at American airports. These creepy creatures were made from actual items that were intercepted by the TSA.
