I create automata - kinetic, figurative artworks. See more at www.tomhaney.com. You can buy my smaller pieces in my Etsy shop.
Last day to pack up everything. It’s going to be a Clash day - from their first album to their last. ❤️❤️❤️

Sound on. Last piece to get packed up for the big move this weekend. I love this one - especially the handmade governor.

First look at what will be a fabulous studio, and not a blah garage. The smaller room - the one that looks like a wood shop - will become more of an office/gallery/clean room. Or at least that’s my idea.

Two pieces from the deep dark archives. The first is a futuristic gun I made as a promo for my prop work, and the other is the second key-operated piece I ever made, circa’95. Since I never got that Rock’em Sock’em Robot toy, I finally made my own.   #tomhaney  #tomhaneyart  #tomhaneyartwork  #automata  #automaton  #kinetic  #kineticart  #kineticsculpture   #movingart  #mechanicalart  #mechanism  #gears  #levers  #pulleys  #cams  #historymeetsdecor  #patinaperfection

My studio is starting to fill up with empty space. 😳 Thanks in part today to my buddy Allen Peterson @allenptrsn who just took a load of “premium” artist’s materials off my hands. He will use some but also share them with the talented artists at @southriverartstudios - so none will go to waste. ♻️♻️♻️
As you may know, I hate throwing anything usable away - I love to recycle, repurpose, regift, and pass on any extra raw material to the next creative person. Thanks again Allen!!! 💪🤓🛠

I’m up to my eyeballs in packing boxes. 👁👁 You never really know how much stuff you have until you have to pack it all up in small boxes. I’m using small boxes because pretty much everything I have is heavy. 😩😩😩 
I keep telling myself this is a finite task and it will someday somehow be completed.  #movingdayiscoming   #tomhaney  #tomhaneyart  #tomhaneyartwork  #automata  #automaton  #kinetic  #kineticart  #kineticsculpture   #movingart  #mechanicalart  #mechanism  #gears  #levers  #pulleys  #cams  #historymeetsdecor  #patinaperfection

I just disassembled “Interdependence”, and from this perspective they all look like panhandlers. 😩 I can’t wait to reassemble them in my new studio.

Packing up pieces for the big move. This one - in my personal collection - was my first piece in my “new” style, back in 2005. I began using polymer clay, fabric, found objects, and I completely changed my color palette. 
I love her.

Another treasured find. I’ve had this forever - and I love the unique typeface. Each piece is some sort of porcelain(?), and has a pin in back that sticks into the black background piece. It’s for making titles for home movies, back in the day.

This “motivational” “poster” has been hanging over my sink for years. I love it - and it was made by my friend Lorrie @lennymud 🎨🎨🎨
Yes, I’m packing up everything for our big move in 3 weeks!
