Oddfellows

OddfellowsFL.jpg

 

The crowning glory of the current “Oddfellows” show at Stranger Factory is the collaborative sculpture between myself and the astonishingly talented Chet Zar. A tower of robot and monster goodness. Who controls who in this mash up of metal, bone and flesh. The piece took many months to complete with parts going back and forth across continents. The final result is a probably never to be repeated, surreal bio-mechanical wonder. The whole thing stands some 21″ tall in case you were wondering just how big it was.

It was a real pleasure and privilege to be able to work with Chet on this project. The results are even better than I could have hoped for.

Tiberius Shutterbug

ShutterburgLorez

The new science of Photography heralds a fresh artistic era.
One in which the everyman can create images as beautiful as any trained painter.
Why hire a professional when with the simple application of basic equipment anyone can take their own pictures.
A popular idea not shared by Tiberius.
Anyone may be able to click off a few snap shots. But it takes great skill to make truly great images.
Just dont get him started on the advantages of photographs over paintings.

Weatherspoon’s Day Spa

DaySpaFrontLorez

Once part of a larger factory building the original wave of Mechtorians, Mr. Weatherspoon was the first to see the sense in offering a new sort of service to the growing population. His establishment caters for the wealthier members of society who want a bit of a brush up and a re-fresh. His team of professional craftsmen can offer a wide range of upgrades or refurbishments to suit any need or desire. From simple lube job to relieve those little twinges to a total body remodel to meet the needs of ever changing fashions. Fast, discreet and hygienic.

The Toy Maker

ToyMakerWorkshopPromoLorez

Sebastian Whittler  – Toy maker

Renown throughout the land for their marvellous toys, Sebastian is one half of the famous Whittler brothers.
He works miniature mechanical miracles with whatever comes to hand. Creating curious characters and fantastical clockwork facies for the discerning collector.
He has the sense when he works that he is breathing a little bit of his soul into each of his creations.

An odd idea as they are, after all only clockwork.
Toy clockwork.
Not real living clockwork like himself.
