Tom Hardwidge

9 Jan

‘Arthrobots’… what an unusual find! These mechanical insects otherwise know as ‘Arthrobots’ are created by Tom Hardwidge. The pieces are made from deactivated ammunition, pocket watch parts (similar to those I have collected for my own project), a range of metals and tiny nuts and bolts. I decided to write this post as the sculptures are not only intricate and interesting to look at, but my current project is also inspired by a combination of mechanical and organic elements.
