Mission To Mars

Blast into the past with this delightful and quirky robot sculpture by artist Toby Fraley. Handmade from vintage picnic jugs, coffee thermoses, old vacuum cleaner tubes and other found objects, Rocketship Robot is a tribute to Fraley's childhood love of robots and his present-day love of the "futuristic," mid-20th century design of diners, bowling alleys and tin toys. This overgrown nightlight provides ambient lighting and is made mostly of recycled parts that have been screwed or bolted together. Handmade in Pennsylvania. Each is one of a kind and will vary.

Please allow 16 weeks for delivery.

For shipping purposes, the robot sculpture will arrive in two pieces and can be easily assembled with a screwdriver. Includes a 15-25 watt tubular light bulb. Standard lamp cord.
