The Magic of Cabaret Day 12Matt Smith made a small edition of these pieces earlier in the year, and a recent look in the stock cupboard revealed that we have one left!

The man is calmly resting on the box with his arms folded, in his hand he holds his price ticket when you wind the handle he presents you with the ticket, however when he sees the price he takes a closer look. His jaw drops and his eyes pop out.

He is carved from lime with a Douglas fir box and various other materials, the original and rather elaborate painting on his Hawaiian shirt was devised by Matt’s wife Sarah whilst they were artists in residence at the Exploratorium in San Francisco in 2004.

Matt Smith has worked with Cabaret ever since we first opened in Falmouth in 1979 – here is a picture of him as a young man behind the counter in the original shop. In 1985 Matt started the Fourteen Ball Toy Company with Paul Spooner, and from then a long automata-making collaboration began.
