The “Streamline” – Art Deco Keyboard
This glimmering polished aluminum keyboard pays homage to the streamlined, “Machine Age” styling of the 1920’s with a glossy acrylic faceplate, reflective silver keys in a tall Art Deco font, and stepped layers of polished metal.
I am not sure if I will be using this in the house I am designing but the stove did need a few things. I made another brass bucket for the coal it uses and a much smaller copper teapot to go on the back burner today. Now I must make a coal shovel for it.
This was once the plastic the Chrysnbon parlor stove. It was in my very first post. I thought it was sort of sad looking in plastic. The kit it had lots of bright silvery “nickel” parts. I thought about casting those pieces in nickel silver for a duller look but decided against it.
H.G. Wells Tesla pistol W13 Ive gone Tesla crazy since finally sourcing some vacuum tubes (thanks again Carole!). First there was Claudias mini Tesla pistol last week and now a H.G. Wells steampunk Tesla pistol this weekend! If youre wondering why a H.G. Wells steampunk Tesla over the regular Tesla, its because H.G. is my favorite Warehouse 13 character and Im still having trouble sourcing parts for the actual Warehouse 13 Tesla pistol prop. Anyway I figured it only right H.G. Wells get a Tesla all her own!
I LOVE the detail in this blaster, it is beautiful, I only wish I could remember where I got it from as I want more! I fully weighted it, so its heavy to pick up and added the vacuum tube, after finding one that fit perfectly, after I had taken a saw to the gun itself.
“Fourth day of the holiday weekend I got a lot done,” writes The KronoNaut on Flickr. “It’s coming along rather nicely. I’ve decided to take the empty drive bays, and make them into apothecary drawers.” And why not?
This is a pair of steampunk engineer goggles which have a medium blue base coat and are highlighted with a metallic silver finish. They have been painted and sealed with a flat sealer. They also have pewter colored extension rings that are highlighted with aluminum sand-offs. Each eye piece is decorated with a distressed silver finished metal wing and gears which are mounted to the sides with chrome acorn nuts. Hexagonal stand-offs are also mounted on each side . They include 2-50 mm poly carbonate clear lenses, 2-50 mm shade 3 green lenses, and an elastic adjustable head band. The lenses are removable and interchangeable. One of a kind. Thanks for browsing.
Drawing inspiration from my previous Ergo Keyboard, “The Marquis” has an elegant chaise-lounge inspired design with acanthus-leaf engraving on polished brass. This keyboard also features key lettering engraved on a mirrored gold acrylic.
Steampunk Animals by James Corbett, The Car Part Sculptor
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.
