I am a Glasgow based photographer. Working from Hillington area, only 10mins on the train from Paisley or Glasgow Central. I specialise in boudoir, pinup, modelling portfolios and alternative shoots. I have mostly weekend and evening slots available for booking. I am unable to take on any TF shoots at this time. Please get in touch if you want any more information – Thanks – Louise x
We thought some of these Victorian era designs from Etsy dealer, Old World Computer, looked familiar. I happened back upon the Etsy seller while searching online for iPad desk stands, discovering this fanciful steampunk design, quickly realizing “woodguy32” had updated the catalog with plenty of new iPad, iPod, and even Android device desk accessories for those partial to yesteryear’s aesthetic…
Our favorite of the handcrafted bunch is the iPhone Dock Oak Charger with old timey handset shown above:
Old Tom Computer is actually a side project, complementing another business operated by “woodguy32”: hot rod Woodies (those 1930’s cars made famous by the Beach Boys). In either case, Cincinnati craftsman, woodguy32’s skills are not to be denied and worth a gander, if just for curiosity’s sake.
*A sad note shared on their Etsy shop home page: “Please Note: I have been hit with Cancer a second time. There will be a delay in getting orders out. If you purchase an item, please understand this.”
The nixies used are Siemens ZM1040, from an old milling machine. The clock is connected to the Frankfurt Radio Time Signal. Behind the round lens you can see the “caesium source” lighting up bluish.. Because there was plenty memory available we can show: hours and minutes. seconds, year, software version, software issue date, time signal decoding And there was still memory left so we can also show pi up to 18000 decimals. You choose with the bakelite selector switches. Old voltmeter indicates kW and shows seconds… The wood is cherry wood.
Bit quiet round here, so here’s some of my work; Steampunk stylee.
I needed a bookshelf in the Little Shed workshop, and had space over the window to put it. Grabbed an old plywood shelf from the woodpile and a few brackets, so up it goes. Needs a couple of bookends too, just to stop the books falling over, so why not Stick A Cog On It
Recycled materials, acrylic and modeling. Average height of 9 inches.
Those assemblages are composed of recuperated items and diverted from their primary function to create disparate creatures.
Art, recycling and vintage passion are combined. Piece by piece, the character is defined, a personality emerges randomly with the work evolution, brings a breath of life to the composition and carries us into a particular visual universe with steampunk and junk art influences.
The palace and park Goetz Okocimskich is located very close to the brewery Okocimski, founded in 1845 by a German who came to John the Evangelist Goetz (1815-1893). It was built in 1898 by his son John Albin Goetz Okocimski (1864-1931).
It started with a birdcage and the thought: how would a steampunk birdcage look? And I added an elaborate base, brass and hardware, then a weathervane made from a clock hand, just to balance the piece and draw interest to the top as well as base. I thought putting a bird inside the cage was too easy, so I decided to build a metal bird and let him be outside, so he had a choice. The bird came together well, and I found watch pieces that were left and right shapes that reminded me of wings, not bad. I found a metal bead for the body and a brass bead for the head. Nothing I had was right for the beak, so I fumbled around and decided to cut a cone-shape in half to make it work.
All brass with a couple of copper and wood bits.all parts were hand made (*except for the screws) from hardware store and craft store brass stock/fittings.Battery holder,The round part in the middle holds a kick. the small knob is set into the kicks wattage adjuster.The switch is the part below the 510 connector, its mechanical and pushes a pin up into the base of the atomizer, insulated with wood insert.Shoe laces. I took the center core out of dress shoe laces and inserted the wires to get that old timey look.battery cap and locking mechanism.I made this to hold a flat top 18650 only, it won’t hold a button top or stacked 18350’s
After completing my custom keyboard, I was constantly annoyed with seeing my ugly plastic mouse sitting next to it, so I knew a new project was inevitable. I decided to make a custom matching mouse! At first I felt this project was beyond my abilities, since I had to make actual moving and working parts, but after hours of staring at a dissembled mouse and my boxes and jars of random found objects, I developed a plan of attack. The mouse I started with was a generic 5 button mouse with scroll wheel. The two main left/right buttons were the largest obstacles for I couldnt find anything that would both look and function well. My first though was to use the two sides of a bottom jawbone of some rodent I had lying around, but they ended up being too small and fragile for constant use. I then decided I will just carve some pieces out of wood. After this, I made a mount using brass tubing and brass I-beam shaped pieces. To match the keyboard, I decided to add vintage typewriter keys to each of the finger points on the main 4 buttons of this mouse. I used Alchemy symbols to replace the original letters in the keys. These symbols may or may not have been chosen for a specific significance in this project.
The Chamber de Commerce alias Cdc is an absolutely fabulous Stock Exchange location, located in a busy city and surrounded by ugly concrete buildings. Only the four relative narrow passages are giving a small glimpse of what the inside of this beautiful queen has to shown. The current building is a reconstruction from 1872. The original building dates from 1531, this late Gothic styled stock market has been burned twice [1583 and 1858]. The CdC is built on top of an existing street intersection with originally no roof, only four covered streets, the still existing and impressive galleries. Around 1853 the square and galleries where covered with a dome modeled on the Crystal Palace in London.” Jan Stel – See more at:
