David Lipson assembles robot sculptures from varying materials, old and new. Inspired by Lipson’s love of Tin Toy Robots, Sci-Fi movies and retro design, his creations use a combination of items located from various places such as thrift and retail stores, construction sites, garbage dumps, recycle shops, flea markets, garbage cans, and hardware stores. David’s preferred materials are stainless steel, metal, glass, and Bakelite, which he drills, cuts, sands, and sometimes hammers when preparing the components for Robot assemblage. Assembly is achieved with nuts and bolts. There is no welding. The results are one-of-a-kind robots, with each unique piece not only named by the artist, but also include his signature nameplate. The robots vary in size from 6 inches to 51 inches.
These robots are not built as toys and are for artistic display only. They are not to be given to small children, and should be handled with care. Lamps, clocks or radios used are often functional, but none of the meters are operational.
