Welcome to the world of PB retro bots, robots and ray guns. Here you will find robots handmade from everyday items from around the house and work shop. My retro bots or junk bots however you would like to refer to them are all lovingly put together in my studio. I have no idea of what I’m going to build but will see a robot looking out at me from the bits and pieces that are lying around my work shop. Some of my robot sculptures may start with a pair of legs and stay that way for a while until I can find the right body to get them to the next level of construction. Part of the fun in building my robot sculptures is that they all start to take on a personality of their own. This helps me to give them a name and come up with a story for each robot. One of my favourite robot sculptures was booster. This retro bot was one of my first builds and I was able to write a story about this robot that is on going to this day. Where is my robot inspiration taking me? At the moment I am getting excited about steampunk and this fashion of steam meets Victorian England. If you look at it, its Jules Vern meets caracticus pots and Victorian explorers. I love the way steam is the new oil and everything runs on it. All brass and copper with leather straps crazy machines that fly driven by steam hats with goggles and glasses with multiple lenses. Now I have a range of retro ray guns made from brass and copper with vintage wiring to give them the feel that they were made in the period of the late 1890s one of the best parts of using these materials is that it takes on its own natural patina a look that is hard to reproduce. Also in my collection of robot sculptures are my brass steampunk robots some of which will soon be made as robot table lights. Like all of my retro bots I have kept the stories going with my steampunk range of robots and ray guns here you will find the world of Dr Halberstadt a German inventor of military weapons for the new luft patrol a world police force that keeps the peace in our galaxy.
The story of Agent K
Galactic agent k one of three agents from the secret arm of the space patrols. Picked for their cunning and stealth approach to any situation they may face. Often working in groups of three they are able to spot a robot that is out of place knowing where to look and when to act. You never know when you will see one.
