Love Doves Automaton

Love Doves Automaton
£125.00 1 Available
Love this


An automaton made form cherry wood. 2 Doves walk back and forth turning at each end. Doves, mechanism and plinth are made from cherry wood. Brass fittings with delrin bushings for durability. This small automaton is 12 cms high. It is one of a range of automata that I make. All parts are designed and made in my workshop from the basic materials.
My pieces are all finished to a high quality with several coats of acrylic varnish, both matt and gloss as appropriate.

In a move away from the larger automata that I make and following a visit to an exhibition at Japan House in London I was inspired to design some automata using cherry wood, as was often used in Japanese automata. I also worked on a design that escaped the usual "cams in a box" lay out, exposing the workings and minimising the support structures.
