Automata + Metalwork

The automata are made in silver, copper and brass with various other bits added, depending on design.

I treat the metal with patination and oxidisation techniques to achieve turquoises, rich browns, reds and blacks.  I also use leaf metal applications and varnishes to seal and add lustre.  Touches of recycled aluminium add highlights of bright colour .

Working parts are copper, brass or wood.  All finishes are interchangeable.  Most automata can be made with either a metal or wooden base.




All jewellery is made in silver and has a soft and subtle finish.  Some items are oxidised to add a dark contrasting colour.
