Ivan Golletz is one of Village Studios newest artisans. Shown here is Ivan's replica of a Steam Crank Slider Mechanism. The different woods Ivan has used make it an interesting table or desk piece on its own but by simply turning the handle, either way (which makes the crank move backwards and forwards), it becomes a fully working piece of art. The original mechanism would have been massively built in cast iron but this wonderful small wood version is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in mechanics.
