My current project was influenced by my working with the local carving group. Owls are popular in the carving world right now. The last couple of shows I attended had many owls entered. My challenge was to make something that moved of course. There is a Gary Larsen Farside cartoon of two owls sitting in a tree and one is doing the classic tap on the others shoulder. Having recently rediscovered the cartoon it becam the focus of my new design.
So here a couple of photos of an owl in progress.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
