About Copper to Chrome

At Copper to Chrome, Rob takes immense pride in craftsmanship and attention to detail to produce exciting, unique pieces that enhance his clients’ spaces.

“Hi, I’m Rob, and I guess you could say my work sits at the crossroads between Art & Engineering.

I suppose the Retro-Futuristic vibe is in my blood! I like how all my pieces have a timeless charm and quirkiness.

As an Artist & Mechanical Engineer I can instil a real character and authenticity into every piece, a story, I guess, that you could imagine could be told…….

In my art, I try to create a look of an extended time spent on this planet ( or maybe another?….), a somewhat worn but enriched character that’s evolved over the decades.

It’s a little difficult to show everything these sculptures offer on a computer screen, so why not come and see for yourself?

If what you see here interests you, a trip to my Gallery to see the pieces ‘in the flesh’ is bound to be well worthwhile!”
