Lewis B. Nickleby Began With an Odd Brown Hat

Oh, Lewis B. Nickleby!  Your robot-y goodness makes Candace the Muse smile!  HerArtSheLoves is a robot creator extraordinaire!  Her polymer clay robot figures are so charming that Candace wants to have conversations with them!

I can’t help it!  They look like they’d be so interesting to talk to!  Here’s what HerArtSheLoves had to say about this little guy:

“Lewis B. Nickleby (named by a fan) Began with an odd brown hat I made that needed a head. I was also working with paint more and began my rustic phase robots, a silver robot who’s been around for a long time, yet is still cheerful and positive.”


“‘Golden Garrick, often mistaken as orange and blue. I wanted to work with a classic blue and bold metallic. When I moved onto robots with friendly features… like mouths, Garrick came out perfect. I swear he posed for the camera. He’s still my mascot and requests for twin brothers still come in.”
“Purple Parker, a jiggly wiggly robot, is rarer for two reasons, he is one of the few robots I’ve made sitting down and truly jiggly wiggly. I was experimenting with new painting techniques and wanted to make a robot that sat a bit like Kermit the Frog.”
Robot Sculpture - Andrew Purple & Blue - HerArtSheLoves “Andrew Purple & Blue, is a photo holder and one of the last robots I made without a mouth. I love blue and myself making more blue robots than any other color. His purple parts are actually clay and the blue was hand painted. He came out so awesome, that he became my original mascot.”
Here is what HerArtSheLoves told me about herself:

“Part digital illustrator, part sculptor, pure geek. I make robots, the decorative kind that like to stand around, not the skynet kind. I’ve worked online for others in other forms for years, I finally had the chance to work and create entirely for myself. I began working with clay as a child when my mother bought me polymer clay and let make whatever I want. In recent years I incorporated spun wire into little coils and textured paint techniques. Each robot is handmade with polymer clay, is shaped into robotic goodness, beads added for eyes and wire woven into springs to make the neck, arms and legs. After baking, multiple coats of varnish are brushed on for protection and shiny delight.”

Shiny delight indeed! I can’t get enough of that sweet robot-y goodness! You can find HerArtSheLoves here:
