A milestone for me today is that one of my automata took up permanent residence in Marvin's Marvellous Mechanical Museum in Farmington Hills in Michigan, USA! Now I get to drop that I am an internationally renowned automatist, ... as if! Anyway I have mentioned before Marvin Yagoda is a colourful character, running a colourful business. As a collector of automata he has numerous pieces on display in his museum from around the world. If you are ever in the neighbourhood, do stop in.
Here's Marvin and I at the inauguration of "The Waiting Room" into the museum's collection. Visit the museums Facebook page at
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
