Not Toys, but "Fine Art Sculptures"--Put a smile on the face of your inner child
Yes, That's right! These are NOT toys. These are created for you, a grown up, the fine art collector who has that inner kid wanting to once again have a very special "one-of-a-kind" artwork that NO ONE ELSE HAS. You are THE one that loved all those old toys and now wishes you could be back in those days where ALL your toys were so very special. Although these are not toys, these ARE the spirit and soul and imagination of that little kid that you once were...Not just a collection of memories, but now in YOUR collection of fine art-- and all this is even more special now! Display them proudly!"
"Artfully Recycled Treasures" = A.R.T.-bots.
The items I needed to begin my new creations were right in front of me; computer parts, old mechanical gears, washers, wires, and clamps, clocks, sprinkler parts, and a huge amount of recyclable pieces that might go into "the junk" pile!
I've put together an amazing number of parts and created the first of many ART-bots you will see in the future. All parts are screwed and glued--NO welding! The series and subjects grow, even as I type this. Some have gone to new places but I will try to update the news as more are being finished.
I still love bronze casting and do commissions and, yes, this new form of sculpture is still representational of people and animals--so I'm carrying on all that I've learned but using a different medium and a whole new attitude!!!!
They are ONE-OF-A-KIND treasures. Each one is created with many parts and "findings". They all come with Certificates of Authenticity so they are very special. They will add smiles and imagination to your fine art collection. Collect more than one or two so they'll have companions!
Please contact me to learn how YOU can own one. Now, off to the studio to make more A.R.T-bots !
