My name is Mark and 40 odd years ago I used to sit in front of my parents electric fire making robots and rockets and space ships out of cogs, wheels and bits of wood that my dad brought back from his job as a clock repairer.
Fast forward to the present day and here I am making Gizmobots.
Gizmobots are found objects robot artworks that start life as finds from car bot sales, skips and scrap yards. Each robot is carefully crafted by me so that all the parts come together to create a desirable, quirky robot sculpture, each with its own personality.
As a qualified electronics engineer I sometimes re-appropriate old electronic equipment to give the robots i make a purpose, such as being an iPod doc, a desk light or a working radio.
Gizmobots are the ideal present for the person who has everything as each on each one is unique and comes with its own back story explaining its personality, likes, dislikes and hobbies. I hope you enjoy meeting my creations!
