discover a whimsical world of wire and literature

Official launch of the
Saturday Morning book by James Paterson 

Saturday Morning and The Storytelling Machine have been traveling to schools and recently to Montreal, delighting children and adults alike. It has been a joy to have students participate in workshops and see the creativity that emerges. Connect with me if you would like to host a visit from The Storytelling Machine and having a reading from the Saturday Morning book at your school, library, or event. I'd love to share my wild, whimsical wire sculpture and the captivating story of Antwon and Bejoe and their Saturday Morning adventures with you and your audience.

But Wait! There's More...


 The Storytelling Machine Video is accessible right here!

"The Storytelling Machine"

is featured in a professional video available via QR code

in my new book "Saturday Morning" published by 

Post Hypnotic Press.

The video shows the Storytelling Machine, one of my moving wire sculptures, as seen through the eyes of someone discovering it for the first time, bringing him back to happy childhood memories. The "Saturday Morning" book is narrated in the video by Canadian actor, Lisa Bunting.

If you have a copy of "Saturday Morning" book

I believe that we were made for joy. And that out of that joy comes our desire to create. And to be creative means to participate in bringing things together.

 We all in some way participate collectively in being creative...

James Paterson

         James' work has won numerous awards and received mainstream media           

         coverage. Large signature pieces have been commissioned for some of

         the  world's most renown children's hospitals and private collectors. His wire               sculptures have been found at top exhibitions in Canada, the United States,               Europe, and Asia. 

"I hope that people who see my art will come away with an infusion of joy and delight. That they will be reminded there are mysteries in life worth probing, inner journeys of discovery worth taking and deep resonant rhythms sounding around us that we must listen carefully for if we are to hear them and be awakened to the redemptive nature of God in creation."


"I want people who see my art to reclaim a simple sense of wonder."
