Holiday Robots from HerArtSheLoves!

Artist Profile: HerArtSheLoves

Artist: HerArtSheLoves
Website: http://theawesomerobots.com
Bio: I make robots, the decorative kind that like to stand around, not the skynet kind.
Who? Artist: makes one of a kind, sometimes jiggly wiggly always awesome, robot sculptures known as HerArtSheLoves all over the web! My background is in digital illustrating and polymer clay sculpting, BUT most importantly I'm a Über nerd. All manner of science fiction I love.
Why? I began working with polymer clay in childhood and returned to the media through out the years. In 2009 I combined my love of geek and sculpting to create robot sculptures. All manner of sci-fi, I freakin' love. Why make robots? Because THEY ARE AWESOME. K-9, Bender, Robbie the Robot... I get to work with an art media I fell in love with as a child and get my geek on every day!
How? Polymer clay is shaped into robotic goodness, beads added for eyes and wire woven into springs to make the neck, arms & legs (coiling gizmo rocks). After baking, multiple coats of varnish are brushed on for protection and shiny delight. Thanks for stopping by and keep being awesome!
