Edmund Dohnert – Mechanical Curiosities
Edmund Dohnert can’t decide if he’s an artist or an engineer. Having looked at his mechanical curiosities, I’d conclude that he’s both and more.
His wonderful selection of devices are made from brass and wood. There is a Heath Robinson style to the functionality but the craftmanship is up there with a cabinet maker. All the pieces are finished to a very high standard and materials have been carefully selected with difference colours and grains of wood to complement the metal components.
The website provides a great selection of pictures and details of the technical challenges of each item.
