I've decided to break out of the shop and take a piece to a local carving competition! I will attend the Kawartha Carvers Competition in Bobcaygeon, Ontario this weekend to display the "Urban Terrorists". I realize that automata will not be viewed as true carving, but it will give me a chance to rub shoulders with some of the local artisans who ply the woodworking craft. It should be fun and i am curious to see the reaction of show visitors to the automata art form.
If you are in the Kawarthas the show runs from 9:00 to 4:30 at the curling club!
