Works of art made from pieces of or whole natural or everyday objects, assembled sculpture is a twentieth century phenomenon. Often sheet metal is used, but many other materials are suitable. They are put together with techniques such as glueing, welding or soldering. The technique of assemblage can be combined with other concepts found in modern sculpture, such as the use of movement or light.
