Welcome to moving art!
Here you will see how fine art, automata, engineering, conservation, innovation, and creativity are combined to become an art like you have never seen before! Often borrowing mechanical principles from mid 18th century master automata creators, metal sculptor Jean Claude Vanderfield uses the most unlikely metal items with histories that can have roots that reach out for thousands of miles and, from lives that often span well over 100 years into our past. He combines them to form sculptures, but not just sculptures, they become life size automatons that move and take on a life of their own right in front of your eyes. Jean Claude's art brings scores of people, purposes, and stories together in a single point in time and space. Each creation is a new artistic and mechanical singularity from collective diversity.
