Elbert Wiggleworth

Bob is an Artisan who works with Wood. He makes Automata (mechanical toys that move when activated). These toys do not contain any electronics and are powered by the user. He feels the more people use today's electronic devices the more they become attracted to things like these toys. There is a tactile appeal to wood and a curiosity of how things work. Part of his creative process is to show the working mechanics…by turning this it moves that which makes the other spin etc. etc. He started making these pieces 7 years ago after seeing one on Youtube. A few years later he attended the first ever USA automata convention and was amazed by the makers that had come from all over the world and how creativity was alive and well. There are so many folks who share their work online anyone with a desire to create just needs to let go of their inhibitions and give something a try. You will find tutorials to help you along and will achieve satisfaction by making something you previously dismissed as unapproachable. #elbertwiggleworth
