Yesterday I spent an enjoyable day at the Caygeon Carvers Competition, an annual show and competition organized by the local carving club that I am a member of. It's a great way to see some creative and beautiful work made by talented woodcarvers. I had a chance to display some of my work and talk to people about making automata. To most shoe goers it was an unfamiliar art form, and I lots of interest and questions.

It seemed that there were two show favourites. Many people were fascinated with the complexity of the "Fishing" piece and found the story of "Check Please" amusing although everyone seemed to their own favourites.
I would like to thank all those who stopped
by and chatted and gave me suggestions and ideas for future projects!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
