Using driftwood, found and reclaimed materials Robert Race recycles the mundane into the magical.
His work combines a history and understanding of moving toys, simple automata and kinetic sculpture. Identified as a toymaker on his passport his work appeals to the child in us all but the simplicity of his shapes and forms belies a complex understanding of movement and its rhythm.
His sculptures move in simple but interesting ways raising a smile as they do but are equally entrancing when motionless.
Hybrid keeps smaller pieces of Robert's work in stock and larger pieces from time to time which may also be made to order, each piece is of course individual and varies according to the material used.
