A Second Devil in The Cupboard Automaton

It's is about half way through being made and this time the devil is going to be in the cupboard under the stairs.

He will be tormenting Mr Punch

Automaton Knitting a Robot

I have been working on a range of knitting girl automata, this one knitting a robot I finished yesterday.

Today a wonderful little boy came in to the studio and was really fascinated by her. He asked how long it would take for her to finish the robot. He then spent ages turning the crank to try and get her to knit more of it. (At lest 15 mins and then kept sneaking back in to get a few more turns) 
I can clearly remember when I thought that knitting was a skill that involved bashing sticks together to make woolen things.

Caroline McCatty at the Torpedo Factory

I have some pictures for those of you too far away to come and see me. I am in studio 333, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun all June and Aug. This is what's on the walls at the moment.

I will be making things in the back of the studio.
