Featured Automaton Maker: Wanda Sowry

Wanda Sowry is an automata maker from the UK. I really love her style -- the different unfinished woods, imaginative themes, and attention to detail.

Be sure to click on the image at left to see a larger animated image of her self-portrait automaton. (I've been meaning to do one myself.)

From her site:
I have a small workshop on a farm near Bath. I partake in various exhibitions around the UK and I also make many personalised commissioned pieces.

My automata designs are quite simple and light-hearted. I like to use the different colours of natural wood.

Visit the site of the talented Wanda Sowry.
