For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for building things. Legos and Lincoln Logs occupied my time as a youngster, but as I grew older and my construction techniques progressed, I sought out new and unusual materials that would allow my imagination to run wild. Then, one lazy afternoon while watching movies I was inspired by an unusual lamp and my artistic career was born. Lamps led to clocks, small tables, chandeliers and my first attempt at robots with my Night Watchmen series. The Night Watchmen had robot heads and a body but no arms or legs. Then came the day when I made my first full-bodied robot sculpture, and I knew I had found my true passion. Soon, my basement became a place where all the unwanted, used up parts from commercial enterprises and residential homes could now come to find hope. This was when I created the world’s first robot orphanage. These parts refused to give up on life just because they were being discarded. So with a little help from myself, these parts were coming together with new and unusual friends to fulfill their dreams of once again bringing joys to others. And bringing joy they are to families as far away as Hong Kong. Thank you to all those who have adopted robots and to all future adoptees who provide their new loving homes.
