Ian has been making automata and mechanical toys in his studio since 1990. HIs hand crafted toys are quirky and fun, and made in a variety of materials but mainly wood.

Ian says: ' I love watching how people interact with my pieces, how they play with them – they don’t have to be respectful but can have fun with them.

'The interactive element adds an extra emotional and physical element to the way people respond to my work which I think is an important part of it. 

My pieces can work as non-moving sculptures, but for me the movement is an added bonus.'
