Ron Fuller: The Toy Maker [VIDEO]
March 28, 2012 | Toys, wood | No Comments|
Ron Fuller has been making toys for over 50 years. He makes toys, automata, gifts, novelties, souvenirs, clocks and whirlygigs. He likes to keep “abreast” of the time, and he has great fashion sense. Here’s Fuller on color:
Being a toymaker is quite a romantic notion. I play with cars and trains and boats and planes all day – it’s a substitute for real life. I don’t want to look drab. I live in a world of make-believe. My trousers are from Gallyons countrywear shop in Norwich, and my beret is from the UN peacekeeping force. I like wearing bright colours.
He’s my hero! Watch this brief documentary by Richard Hunter for evidence.
