And here’s another of Susan’s new pieces, “The Beast of the Machine

Steampunk Victorian filigree beetle Volkswagen by Metal Art shop Vrbanus, Sisak, Croatia. Three craftsmen spent 3000 hours, about four months on the painstaking job with details such as 24-carat gold leaf embelishments and a hand-stiched leather interior.
it was used to display a slide-show of photos at the couple’s wedding reception although we’re hoping Garageband wasn’t removed to save space! Notice the granite monitor base and leather detail exquisite.
This picture shows the captain of the Zeppelin in the back. Its a fantasy portrait made out of three single pictures: the portrait of the pilot, Cello Cellini, the steam-powered machine in the middle and the image of a zeppelin in the back. The strong spotlight is coming from a Nikon speed light flash which was placed on a tripod on the steam-powered machine.

James Corbett takes used card parts and, using them like pieces in a puzzle, creates amazing steampunk sculptures.
Corbett showed artistic talent ever since he was a little boy. Colleagues at his Redcliff school would always tell him hed grow up to be an artist. But, at 36 years old James was running a motor wrecking business. Thats when he started welding together a bunch of car parts and awakened the dormant talent inside. In just 18 months he closed his wrecking business and became a full-time artist.
James Corbet says he makes these original sculptures because he can and it would be a shame to waste his God-given talent. The Car Part Sculptor has exhibited his works in galleries all across the world.
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. Today this beautiful trade building is in a dilapidated state! The wooden floor is completely loose, walls are starting to crumble, painted wands and ceilings are fading to grey. Moisture and pigeons have left their devastating marks. And the painted emblems on the stunningly curved main ceiling are rotting and falling down! In 2003 the Stock Exchange was closed following a report on fire safety. Since then nothing more was done to protect this abandoned work of art. There where plans for a new future as an exhibition hall and ballroom. In 2008 the city announced that a private investor would renovate the Stock Exchange and would make an agora with stores. They would also have space for a grand cafe, restaurant and several small shops. The city issued a building permit for the ambitious plan of a luxurious hotel, but in practice very little happened to give the building new live! In the outbuildings we see evidence of work, so possible one has yet begun the previously scheduled work. When the renovation of this monumental building will begin remains unclear. Amazing how a building with such a long history could be abandoned, left behind into decline.
