Steampunk Time!

January 25, 2017

steampunk

I’ve been eager to start this wheel, especially since I’ve been collecting odd little pieces of metal for months. And this wheel represents quite a challenge as I need to make these pieces more than embellishments. They need to perform functions whenever possible.  At the top, to the right of the orange handled scissors, are two copper shapes that will cover the handle. These came from the bottom of a vintage pudding pan of all things!  And from the top part of this pan will emerge toe shrouds for the treadles!   There are car parts, fence parts, a soap dish, and even elements from a device used to load shotgun shells.  Ah, what fun!  I’ll show more photos as things progress. Stay tuned.
