    I could indulge the repressed meglomaniac in me with total control over the scripts sets costumes and actors in minutiae I could voice my observations of lifes absurdities in as flamboyant a manner as I desired without ever having to step into the spotlight I always start a piece with the figures and a clear image of what I want them to do then conquering the challenges set by the mechanisms is part of the joy Kate Brakespeare Philip Lockwood Cat and Mouse collection Pat Osborne Philip trained at Junior School of Art and Design Sheffield College of Arts and Crafts and Leeds College of Art Retford Teaching Certificate His work is included in collections in America Norway Austria Japan Australia and Switzerland as well as in the UK When I first began making Automata I was influenced by the Victorian craftsmen who took so much pride in their work that they would even embelish internal parts which would normally never be seen I had a vision of rich mahogany frames supporting carefully polished moving parts I produced domestic or parlour pieces which I hoped would become family heirlooms If this was to be the case longevity was required so I tried and still try to design each item to last as long as possible My method of developing an automaton is to firstly produce sketches for each piece followed by highly detailed working drawings with the mechanism fully developed However as soon as I get into the workshop and begin working in three dimensions I change things Eric Williamson Cook collection Machinations Originally made for the pastry department at Selfridges the Cook is a fine example of Eric s exquisite carving and attention to detail and Alison his wife made the miniature clothes Eric was always obsessed with bringing wood to life in texture colour and movement He began by making marionettes but after getting fed up with shops ringing to complain about tangled string he started to think about puppets without strings hence automata His models got bigger and more elaborate over the years and fantastically impressive though they were it was impossible to quote realistic prices and time scales for their build Having attended many craft shows with his models and meeting like minded eccentrics it occurred to him that sending out un assembled components for customers to build their own models was more practical than painstakingly constructing them all himself so began the germ of an idea which has since grown into Timberkits LTD Andy Hazell The Cyclist Based in the Mid Wales market town of Knighton in Powys Andy Hazell is a prolific and popular maker whose broad spectrum of work ranges from tin automata to large scale public art He is a recycler of objects on a gargantuan scale Working with recycled tin and sheet metal he creates automata that are often inspired by the actions of daily living He makes little tin figures that represent moments in time As he folds bends beats
