i think these machines by metalsmith shingo furukawa are interesting. typo-matic sweetheart is my favorite of these two. his work is hard for me to find. i would love to see more if any of you are in the know!

I had the very lucky chance to work under him for 8 weeks, and I must say he was very thorough and intriguing. He was silly and whimsical with what he conceptualized about, but was exceptionally detail oriented and concerned with craft. I found it refreshing and still do - sloppy work won't get you anywhere. I too have a hard time getting him to show me work and unfortunately don't have anything saved - keep searching though, hopefully he'll end up on more blogs!
