40 odd years ago Mark Haig would sit in front of his parent's electric fireplace making rockets, space ships and robots out of cogs, wheels and bits of wood that his dad had brought home from his job as a clock repairer.
Fast forward to the present day and Gizmobots was born!
Gizmobots are pieces of art made up of an abundance of objects found at car boot sales, skips and scrap yards. Each robot is carefully crafted so that all the parts come together to create a desirable, quirky robot sculpture, each with its own back story and personality.
As a qualified electronics engineer Mark sometimes re-appropriates old electronic equipment to give the robots a purpose, such as being an iPod doc, a desk light or a working radio while others purely serve as a decorative sculpture with a unique talking point!
Gizmobots is open to commissions so get in touch to get your very own personalised robot.
