Original Wood Automata by Dug North

So who is Dug North? I am an artist who designs and makes original automata using wood, brass, and a few other materials. I also write about how to make automata and provide various consulting services for enterprises related to automata and other things of a quirky mechanical nature.

Some of things that make my automata special:

  • They are made in limited numbers, often one-of-a-kind
  • They require a diverse set of skills to make
  • Hundreds of hours can go into their design and construction
  • They are interactive and captivating
  • Some of my automata perform magic tricks
  • Others feature my distinct brand of not-so-scary monsters

Contact Dug North with any questions or comments, or to discuss any opportunities related to automata.
