Thanks to all of you that stopped in to the Conquergood Creative table at the Quinte Carving Show yesterday. It is always fun to display the craft of automata making and talk with folks. It gave me a chance to unveil my latest piece "A Horse of a Different Colour" which was well received. It is always a busy day with lots of cranking and conversation.
I always hope that I might have tempted someone to leap into the craft.
In my mind the Quinte show is one of the best collections of bird carving to be seen around these parts. There were lots of lovely carvings. It even includes a category for the judging of look and behaviours of decoys floating in water.
Here's a photo of our little collection of pieces we took to the show.
Again, hello and thanks to our many visitors.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
