With Corona Virus causing social distancing, just wanted you to know I have plenty of junk--I mean "inventory," of materials to make a perfect fauxbot for you! All of us need something to make us smile right now, so give me a call!
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about Dragon Fire Fauxbots. I hope you enjoy my site and take a moment to drop me a line.
So many people love studying my bots to see how they are made and enjoy looking at the promotional books that showcase them. Now you can purchase your own copy of my newest book. This 8"x 6" book contains full color photos of of more than 100 of my creations. One can be yours for $21.95 including shipping and handling! Drop me a not, or call if you are interested.
A fauxbot is a whimsical sculpture depicting a character, human or animal, that is constructed using found objects. These are items that were destined for the landfill and have been given a second chance to become something of value. While they may look like robots, their only function is to make you smile! Truly in these turbulent times, everyone can use a smile!
Hi, my name is Debbie, and I have a problem. I’m addicted to junk. I can’t pass up an estate sale, rummage sale, overfilled dumpster, or a friend with a bag of cast-offs! Got any good junk? I bet I can make something out of it! I am obsessed with Fauxbots—found object ‘robots’ that depict people or animals. While they are called robots, they actually don’t DO anything but bring a smile to your face. My goal is to make each ‘bot’ have a charming and whimsical personality. This isn’t always easy when working with nuts, bolts, odd bits of machinery and kitchen tools, but it works when the shape of the object brings to mind a similar shape in nature. Many people assume the ‘bots’ are welded together, but in fact I use lots of cold connections—rivets, screws, wire, plumbing connectors, and a bit of epoxy. It’s fun for me to introduce my little ‘friends’ and watch people try to analyze what the parts used to be. I really love taking things that might have ended up in a landfill and giving them a new life. Some call it recycling, I call it fun!
