Guild Members Laurence and Angela St.Leger, are well-known for their witty and beautifully crafted miniature automata, which continue to delight a large following. The St.Leger's work is collected all over the world.

They have been working as miniaturists for 35 years, creating small scale automata for the discerning collector. Laurence trained as a watchmaker so was used to small mechanisms. Quite by chance, he made a mechanical strongman called Samson - and it remains one of their bestsellers.

St Leger mushroom automata-Devon Guild CraftThe automata are made out of wood and recycled tin and are all handmade, including hinges and springs. They can be quite complicated and take some time to make. Over the years they have had work shown in galleries and museums in America, Europe and Asia.
