Miyazaki Steampunk Clock at NTV Shiodome, Tokyo.

This steampunk themed clock designed by the famous Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli is the largest animated clock in the world. The clock was completed in December 2006 after a design period of over four years.

The enormous copper clock is 12 metres high, 18 metres wide, and has extensive animations timed to music including firing steam cannon, moving figures, and moving legs like Howls Moving Castle.

The clock was built by sculptor Shachimaru Kunio who also built the giant Laputa robot on the rooftop of the Ghibli museum. Miyazaki said that he wanted to make something that would be loved by future generations that would last beyond his animated characters.

DeathRay table lamp. Puts out a nice soft light. Great for a desk lamp or for mood lighting. About 20 inches tall. I made this out of found objects and put them together as a one-of-a-kind art object which also serves as a practical light.
