Hello and thanks for visiting my kickstarter! I am a mixed media artist in the North of England.
I have always loved automata. I really like the idea of human powered gadgets. There's something satisfying about hand making a mechanism that comes to life when you turn the handle.
All of my work is inspired by the natural world, and this design from one of my favourite things to do... moon gazing.
Turn the handle on these mini automata to slowly rotate the moon.
They are laser cut from birch ply and measure 9cm tall x 7 cm wide.
The front of each design is hand painted with artists quality acrylic paint and sealed for a protective finish.
Slow down and unwind with your favourite from a choice of three - Badger, fox or hare.
These little pieces of art will look great on the side ready to be picked up and played with. Escape from the stresses of the world for a moment and gaze at the moon.
If my project is successful, I'll send out a survey at the end to collect your preference.
Risks and challenges
This is my first kickstarter, but I am well prepared. Materials are in stock or sourced and ready to be ordered. I have a realistic idea of how long it will take to complete, and have added a bit extra on for luck. I can't foresee any issues, but if any arise, I will keep backers informed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
