About

Gizmobots are found object robot sculptures

I've been building robots since i was 6 or 7 years old as my dad used to bring me back cogs and bits from his job as a clock repairer. At the same time, my uncle worked as a bin man and he used to bring me old broken electronics and interesting mechanical items. As a 9 year old I saw Star Wars and realised that I wanted to build props and make films, something I've been doing for the past 20 years. About 2 years ago I built a robot sculpture that was also an Ipod dock for a friends birthday. She thought it was amazing and said "you should be selling these..." And so Gizmobots was born. I now have a crazy studio full of things that I find at car boot sales, skips and second hand shops. I build 3 or 4 robots a week (depending on their complexity) and sell them worldwide. My unique selling point is that, not only do I build desirable robot sculptures, but some of them are fully operational lights, radios and I-pod docks. Another unique service I provide is that the robots each come with a funny back story that I am happy to customise with details of the robots recipient to make a truly unique gift
