A few details from a previously sold piece. ‘Wales.’ Oil on board 21 x 21” #madebirds #oilpainting #birdpainting #artistoninstagram #etsyseller #etsyshop #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #myart #artist #artwork #contemporaryart

WIP. Working on this robin for a commission, it was the favourite bird of a nice chap who will soon be taking a ride on it. I’ve been looking forward to this one and forced myself to clear all the other jobs first so I could focus on it properly. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #birds #robin #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #myart #artist #artwork #contemporaryart

WIP. Another nice mallard nearing completion and will soon be winging its way to a new home. I don’t know if anyone else finds this, but all of the orders I am now producing are better looking / working pieces than the examples I have in my sales videos. I’ve since made nice grass and given them glass eyes etc. Makes me want to redo all the videos, but that’s quite a task so not sure I can bear doing it again. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #birdboxes #birds #birdlovers #birdpainting #duck #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #instagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork #contemporaryart

My first swan carvings are underway and I have two early observations. 1. Swans are dinosaurs. Seems pretty obvious really. 2. That black bump between their bill and eyes is going to ruin my life. Mallards have a lovely slope there and all I need is a rounded file, but now there’s a horrible bump. Anyone want to tell me it’s name so I can swear at it? #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #bird #birds #swan #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #nature #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork

I also paint every now and then. Seems like some sort of situation in this one. 21 x 31 inch, oil on board. Framed. Available in Etsy shop, link in bio. #madebirds #oilpainting #fineart #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #dogpainting #petportrait #art #myart #artist #artwork

Thanks so much to the new followers and those of you who have got in contact. Unreasonably some of you have actually placed orders which has slowed me down from the real work of showing half baked prototypes on Instagram, but there’s a lot of new stuff on its way and a new bird range for Etsy that I am pretty chuffed about. Thanks again! #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #1000followers # 1kfollowers #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #nature #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork

I am no longer allowed to make presents for my 18month old. Apparently there needs to be some kind of joint decision making when I do ‘my’ making even though I apologised to him and explained it was only meant to be a bit of fun. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #movingart #mechanism #art #myart #artist #artwork

Back to the prototype! At last. Had a few orders recently so haven’t been able to work on this one for a while which has remained sitting on my workbench driving me a little mad. I cracked yesterday and ended up staying awake all night happily fiddling. The movement still needs to be a little smoother but really pleased with the first attempt. These will come in a small range of different birds and riders, but will also available for bespoke portrait commissions. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #bird #birds #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #nature #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork

So pleased to get another sale! Great to get a few tangible results after spending a lot of time setting this up. Until someone does you have no idea whether someone will actually want to buy the things you make, so it’s a bit of relief. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #birdboxes #bird #birds #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #nature #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork

You can find the link to the shop in my bio. There I’ll be selling automata and other artworks and should have a second range of bird related automatons in the new year. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #birdboxes #bird #birds #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #instagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #nature #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork #contemporaryart

After some delays I’ve finally got my Etsy shop up and running! Sadly too late for Christmas, but glad to have the bird boxes on there and there are several other automata products which will be on their way soon. This seagull is one of six, I’ll post the others over the next few days. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #birdboxes #bird #birds #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #instagram #handmade #etsyseller #etsyshop #nature #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork #contemporaryart

Birds and cats. Taking a break from the cats, who are proving difficult subjects compared with my lovely birds. The jockey and mechanism are both nearly finished so will get to test them out together as soon as the paint is dry. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #kineticart #mechanicalbirds #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #birds #birdlovers #birdpainting #birdsofinstagram #cats #catsofinstagram #artistoninstagram #instagram #handmade #nature #cute #movingart #mechanism #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #myart #artist #artwork #contemporaryart

Here’s some work in progress bits and bobs from the family portrait automata. As you can see the dancing movement was once quite saucy. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #art #myart #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #handmade #cute #movingart #mechanism #gears #cams #artist #artwork #artistoninstagram #contemporaryart

@madebirds

This was another guitar / music playing automata I made a while ago. I made a version as a gift and then got more carried away doing one for myself. Everything’s a bit rough and was disappointed with Hatty’s sexy wiggle being lost in the movement but nice as a family portrait. Will need to work out how to add an extra figure somewhere. #madebirds #automata #automaton #kineticsculpture #art #myart #mechanicaltoy #mechanicalart #handmade #cute #movingart #mechanism #gears #cams #artist #artwork #artistoninstagram #contemporaryart

Made this as a gift for someone months ago and haven’t been able to visit to give it to them. They’re not on Instagram.

Also building in a secret safe that can be found through a series of riddles hidden around the calendar. It’s going to be difficult not to tell Hector, but will be amazing if he works it out on his own #madebirds #art #myart #artist #artwork #artistoninstagram #contemporaryart #handmade #adventcalendar #christmas #handmadechristmasuk

More cats. Nearly finished with the carving for these, looking forward to using acrylics. I’ve also done some little watercolour ink sketches, For some reason I haven’t used a nib before but that was most fun I’ve had drawing in ages. #madebirds #art #myart #cats #catlovers #catpainting #catsofinstagram #handmade #beautiful #nature #cute #wildlifeartist #wildlifeart #natureart #art #artist #artwork #artistoninstagram #contemporaryart #miniatures
