William Manke is a sculptor, craftsman and game lover living in Lakewood, Colorado. His creations re-interpret familiar elements of classic games with an unexpected elegance that makes you look twice. He looks at games not only as a canvas but also as a medium. Manke earned his BFA from Kent State University in sculpture where he dug into sound art, kinetic sculpture and design. He began exploring game making as art when a fellow artist challenged him to make a wooden pinball machine – which he did.
