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.

Artist Toby Fraley has exhibited in over 40 national fine art and contemporary craft shows. Pieces are held in university, corporate and private collections, including those belonging to two different Grammy Award winning musicians.

Past shows include the Smithsonian Craft show in Washington DC, the Raphael Founder's Prize Show in Pittsburgh and the One and Only Show at the John Michael Kohler Art Center.

Toby also sells his works directly to galleries in over 15 states across the county. His pieces can be found in galleries such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art shop and the Society for Contemporary Crafts shop in Pittsburgh. Additionally he produces privately commissioned works and public art pieces.

Currently, Toby is based in Washington, Pennsylvania about 40 minutes south of Pittsburgh.
