This past weekend I attended the Ontario Wood Carvers Association, Magic in Wood show in Pickering Ontario. I displayed several of my automata pieces again and enjoyed talking to many of the woodworking enthusiasts who stopped by. I was particularly encouraged by the number of people who had returned to the show to see what automata pieces I had created in the past year. attendance. I was flattered that a master carver who had seen my work at last years show was inspired to create some automata of his own and displayed them at the show.
I spoke to many who seem to be taking an interest in the art form and I hope many of them will also tackle a project of their own and bring it to next years show. Thanks to all. It is always nice to meet old and new friends.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
