Its been a summer of Bronte sisters. I have always wanted to make the sisters in automata form. Facinated by the portrait brother Branwell did of them where he also painted himself out I decided to base the characters on this style. They are turned on my wood lathe and then hand painted. They read with slightly shivering arms. I have sourced minature book replicas from Landau House miniature books so they read from the genuine novels.
I am delighted that Hawksbys Gallery in Haworth is where they are being sold. The perfect place.
