Skunk lives, works, and plays in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Skunk is on a relentless mission to transmogrify and personify spark plugs, circuit breaker boxes, reamer blades, typewriters, and the like; helping the little creatures we inherently see in objects transcend their original purpose. Saw blades are reinvented into angelic wings, tin cans devolve into rose pedals, and a broken clarinet gets a second life as a pirate blunderbuss. No outdated or discarded mechanical devices are safe from joining the parade of fantastic creatures, mighty rayguns, and emotional robots, some of which tip the scales at over 300 pounds.
For Skunk there is no greater thrill than trying to create something beautiful with a metal-melting lightening bolt.
