FOBOTS

Shop

Here’s what I love: Robots. Recycling. Flea markets. Making people laugh. Working with my hands. Finding a cool vintage item that was once someone’s treasure–a brooch, a toy, a tin–and making it special again, letting it tell a new tale. And I love the irony of taking really old stuff and creating robots, which have always been so symbolic of the future. Each of my Fobots is one-of-a-kind and has its own story, its own personality, and–like the Tin Man–a heart inside.
