Wanda Sowry

Wanda designs and makes wooden Automata. She makes a mix of commissioned pieces for big birthdays and anniversaries and pieces for various galleries and exhibitions in the UK. The mechanisms are kept quite simple, and no paint or varnish is used on the wood. Wanda prefers to use different natural colours of wood instead. All the wood used is either reclaimed or small off cuts. Working very much by hand Wanda also shapes her pieces using an old mini belt sander with a small inch wide belt. Other tools she uses are a small bandsaw, scroll saw, pillar drill and a dremel

The MAD Museum will be closing at 4pm on Thursday 21st September 2017.
