You know i can’t resist to share with you some workbench pictures! As you may guess two new ARBOROBOTS editions are under construction her in my lab! :]
I was invited to do a piece for the “Memories Are Made of This” Show at MunkyKing Store LA. I did sent “Benz & Jilla” to attend at this great event, i’m sure they will have fun there together with Super Cooper who celebrate his 13th birthday today! :] “Benz” loves to wandering around in green plains and does enjoy the the warm summer breeze with his little pull toy named “Jilla”. Benz & Jilla are made out of brass and sapele mahogany wood with a bees wax finish. This is a one off piece, signed & numbered by embossing and you can adopt them today at the show if u like!
Congrats to Cooper! I can’t fly to LA so i’ll carve some more wood chaps here in my studio but if you’re in the area be sure to head over to Munky King Saturday August 18th to meet my “Benz & Jilla” and see all the amazing artwork from the participating artists.

The BEECHBLOCKS comes from a beautiful place where it is always late spring, with blooming flowers and cloudless skies, never too warm or too cold.
Their heraldic motto is “Walk upright like the trees and keep the sun in your heart!” ^___^
Just wanted to let you know about the next 5 and final lot of the WOODBEES – my collab with the super talented Lunabee. This time we have 4 lovely worker-bees – and of course their esteemed Queen who is larger than the worker bees and sports a beautiful dainty crown. You can see more pictures of all the bees on her flickr:
They will be up on sale today on Lunabees store at 7pm London time on the 17th May! Please note these are the very last in this series, each is uniquely painted and once they’re gone, they’re gone! Worker bees are a mere $99 and the beautiful Queen with the hand carved crown $149. The sale will be take place at Lunabee’s store (http://lunabee.co.uk)!
Designed in London, hand crafted in Zurich, Arborobots are the result of a colaboration by Cris Rose and Pepe Hiller – solid wooden bots that are happy to help.
Made from Walnut, Maple and Brass, these chaps are very limited.
Ramble is the larger character, a robot grown from wood that feels he is missing something in his big hollow tummy. Coming in single and two-eyed variants, he has thoughts on what he might desire and looks to seek them out. Roam is the smaller chap, keen to help out and particularly good at finding lost things. With one big brass eye, he holds his find aloft and shuffles along as quickly as he can manage.
The initial release of this pair will include Roam and two-eyed Ramble in Walnut and Maple. There will be 3x 2 packs that include both figures and a camera accessory, as well as 2 Roam and 2 Ramble figures sold individually. Finally, there is a single painted Ramble, crafted by Pepe and painted by Cris Rose as well as some framed original Polaroids of the pair.
Release July 7th. (sold out)
