HUCK GEE’S SKLFKR
Clutter Magazine and The Designer Toy Awards are excited to announce a brand-new project with Toy of the Year 2015, and Artist of the Year 2015 DTA winner, Huck Gee! Introducing – SKLFKR!! 20 inches of mecha, skull-laden, robotic awesomeness!
As part of winning those prestigious DTA awards, Huck was provided with a sponsorship to work with 3D printing technology to bring to life a brand new creation. Huck wasted no time and went to work. What came back blew us away!
“The mission of the DTA’s is to celebrate and honor the art of designer toy creators all over the world. When we helped arrange this sponsorship for the winner of Artist of the Year we didn’t know what would be created – Huck Gee jumped on this opportunity and brought it to a new level! Seeing the SKLFKR come to life over the last year has been an amazing journey.” – Miranda O’Brien (Clutter & the DTA’s)
To make this dream a reality we partnered with 3D sculpting and printing masters, CUBO – the only team we knew could pull this off. Helping us bring this massive project to reality, Cubo 3D sculpted, rendered and printed this mighty beast. Not only that, they engineered and constructed a series of 3D printed gaskets in order to joint the SKLFKR and give it 7 points of articulation!!
“Take us to your leader…WE DO NOT COME IN PEACE!” – Victor D.L.A (Cubo).
Literally standing at 20″ tall, this piece will be cast in resin and hand assembled here in NYC by Clutter Studios. More release information will be announced soon.
Over a year in the making and it’s a Giant!
“Because mechs and laser beams. Because skulls, spikes and giant axes. Because destroy. Because crushing it. Because SKLFKR.” – Huck Gee
