Chandler is the first robot I ever designed. After learning the basics with only a few metal smith classes, our teacher asked us to make anything our hearts desired. Since we created primarily with metal, and because I knew I wanted to incorporate wire-wrapping into my design, I came to the conclusion that a quirky robot would be a great first project!
After many hours of working with my jeweler's torch, cutting metal, wire wrapping with pliers, I brought Chandler into the world, sweet and innocent little guy that he is. With his metallic heart shining in the sun through the window of the jeweler's studio and his beady eyes squinting up at me, I felt my heart swelling with pride and affection. I knew right then and there Chandler would be the beginning of an incredible journey into the maker/designer world!
... and I haven't stopped making these little bots since;)
