Memoria Technica is owned and operated by Brittany Nicole Cox, also known as Nico. She is an Antiquarian Horologist, which is another way of saying “specialized mechanic”. More specifically, she is a clock- and watchmaker who specializes in the conservation and restoration of antique automata and mechanical music objects. She also makes mechanical magic tricks, optical illusions, toys, automata, and other curiosities.
She is fascinated by magical automata used and made by magicians of old, and one day hopes to own an antique mechanical peacock that can pull an ace from a deck of cards.
Through sharing her skills and knowledge she hopes that horology will experience a revival in the hearts, minds, and hands of the ever curious.
