Gizmobots

Gizmobots are found object robots that start life as finds from skips, second hand shops, car boot sales and scrap yards.

Each robot is carefully crafted so that all the parts come together to create a very desirable quirky robot, each with their own personality.

Visit our family friendly exhibition and take your time recognising the parts that our robots are made of from familiar home appliances and objects of everyday life.

"My name’s Mark and 40 odd years ago I used to sit in front of my parents’ electric fire making robots and spaceships out of cogs, wheels and bits of wood that my dad bought back from his job as a clock repairer. 

Fast forward to the present day and here I am making Gizmobots.

Gizmobots are found object robots that start life as finds from skips, second hand shops, car boot sales and scrap yards. Each robot is carefully crafted by me so that all the parts come together to create a very desirable quirky robot, each with their own personality. As a qualified electronics engineer, I sometimes re-appropriate old electronic equipment to give some of the robots I make a purpose, such as being an I-pod dock, a desk light or a working radio. As a writer I give each robot a quirky (hopefully humorous!) back-story that I can also customise to form part of a truly unique gift.

I am passionate about recycling and re-purposing objects that have come to the end of their useful life and I teach children (young and old!) the value of an object (whether it can be easily repaired for example-rather than thrown in landfill) and, if it it's not able to be saved, then its value as part of a sculpture.

I hope you enjoy meeting my creations!"
