Artist Ron Fuller has been making toys, models, and automata for more than five decades. His name and art are well known in the world of contemporary automata. This short film gives us a glimpse into his workshop and his thoughts.
If you like what you see and want to make some of the same models and automata, be sure to check out Ron Fuller's book The Art and Craft of Wooden Toys. It's full of plans to make Fuller's charming creations including his famous Lion Tamer automaton. One of the best books of its kind. Trust me!
