Invasion of the FluxBots and It's Spring!!! March 20, 2015 21:07
So, Happy Spring!!!!! This winter wasn't too crazy over here in the Midwest, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see it go. It was certainly productive though, the snow filled days gave birth to my FluxBots. An army of quirky robot assemblages made from found objects, kitchen gadgets, industrial forms, and all kinds of other doodads. I've been in the studio, surrounded by not only jewelry supplies, but also boxes of robot parts (which have been there all along waiting their turn in the spotlight) Well, now is their time! Don't worry, I'm not switching gears entirely, just splitting my focus. So I've been streamlining the jewelzzz and creating FluxBots. The Bots have really been marinating for years. I used to make a lot of mixed media assemblage before the jewelry days, clocks made from old tins and such. The Bots are just the next generation so to speak. Check them out and perhaps you'll want to adopt one, or maybe even two!
I just adore them and I will be bringing them to shows and festivals throughout the year**
**some shows don't allow more than one "type" of art per booth, so unfortunately I won't be able to have both jewelry and Bots at all the shows on the calendar.
