Renown throughout the land for their marvellous toys, Sebastian is one half of the famous Whittler brothers.
He works miniature mechanical miracles with whatever comes to hand. Creating curious characters and fantastical clockwork facies for the discerning collector.
He has the sense when he works that he is breathing a little bit of his soul into each of his creations.
An odd idea as they are, after all only clockwork.
Not real living clockwork like himself.

The annual sculptural show curated by Chet Zar opens this Friday at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica California.

Horace Mooch was teased through school for his moustache which had unfortunately been installed upside down. Unable to afford a replacement he taught himself basic metalworking skills and fashioned himself a new one. The replacement never reached his face. So exquisite was it that the Dean of his collage purchased it for himself and started a trend for handmade Tashes. So taken was he with his new found talent and popularity that he set up in business and soon became the go-to place for high end facial adornments. The little workshop was passed from father to son and is now in the fourth generation. Each Horace in turn waring their own Tash upside down in memorium of the founder.
