The Stable by Lisa SlaterThis eye-catching wall-mounted piece is from automata-maker Lisa Slater, who works in the creative community of Hebden Bridge, England.

‘The stable was created after a weekend stay on a farm in the Cotswolds. I went out to photograph the stable block early in the morning and as I chatted to one of the horses other heads started to peep out one by one displaying various movements as they awaited their morning oats.
The horses are made from various wet timber woods with the bark attach to create variation in breadth and colour. Horse hair is used for the manes. The stable block is made from oak with sycamore doors. I like to work in woods to create horses, something about the unprocessed timber shows the life in the material. I keep my mechanisms simple focusing the works appeal in the quality of materials. So these chaps are just operated by a range of friction powered cams.’

    Do you have plans for the stable. My granddaughter loves horses, trains them, and would dearly love a stable built by her Grand Father.
