I’ve become a bit fascinated by the ‘steampunk’ thing. I love the variety of objects that Ed ‘steampunks’. The attention to detail. These are at the far end of the continuum that I usually appreciate or work in. I don’t like a lot or parts added to a work of art that are just for ‘decoration’, but, to me it seems to ‘work’ here. They are integral to the whole.
“I have been making sculpture from repurposed/recycled/upcycled materials for over twenty years. In that time I have made bells, birdbaths, mailboxes, furniture, tea sets, firepits and much, much more. In 2010 I started to devote some of my time to making steampunk type items from the same types of materials I have always used.
The Steampunk items I have made to date are guns, rocket packs, jet packs, time machines, aethermeters, walking sticks, and plasma portals.”
