Newest Robot Assemblages

By Leslie Brier, Brier Design Studio.
This is Elephant Joke, one of my newest robots. His body is made from a vintage wasp trap.
His eyes reflect how I feel lately. An appliance malfunction flooded part of our house, and the resulting damage was a little overwhelming!

Samovar the owl is made from a Russian tea samovar that is more than 100 years old. He carries a rusy pistol adorned with rabbit bones.

 This is The Jacobean. He's a very proper fellow. Possibly a distant cousin of C3P0.

 Hygenica is a little old-fashioned. She  never goes out without her Franco-American Standard Complexion Powder, and a nice red lipstick. She was purchased from the PonShop ( by actress Sally Struthers.
Flash has also gone to a new home via the PonShop as well. When I drilled into the magicubes that make up Flash's legs, the flash actually went off!

The wow's were right all along. Except maybe there should have been more of them!

Hi Leslie,

I bought The Jacobean at the Ponshop yesterday. When I saw it I just had to have it. Love your work, glad I looked you up. Have a great day!
