Check out the latest from automaton artist Tom Haney. This automaton depicts a performing drummer. The figure's body was carved from basswood and the head sculpted from polymer clay. The drum kit is assembled from a variety of found objects. Not only does the video show the piece in action, but we get a great look at the mechanism and its cams. There are also some really nice "in progress" shots of the piece.
