The Brass Lion – Steampunk Recumbent. You'll recall I posted a picture of my recumbent bike last week and that one of things I wondered aloud was how one would go about steampunkifying a bike? Well Eric and Alan – a.k.a. Steuben's Wheelmen – sent me a whole passel of new photos that show exactly how one would go about this process! This is a 'tadpole' configuration recumbent trike that Eric and Alan built from scratch! I was privvy to some of the early construction photos and I'm happy to say it was at my urging that Eric installed the brass coach lamps. His initial reaction was that they were 'over the top' but thankfully I managed to convince him that the steampunk aesthetic was at it's very best when pushed just beyond the limits of good taste! The choice of lighting is as follow: acetylene headlamp up front, kerosene coach lamps amidships and what I believe is an incandescent tail lamp.

The steering gear is quite elegant in it's simplicity and on viewing the movie below you will see the geometry is bang on. Ah! Bébéléphants et Cie. GreenHandSculpture.

Mark Oliver's Portfolio. Mark is a well established, professional Illustrator. Using paint, computer and/or collage, he has illustrated for Advertising, Editorial, Design and Publishing. His list of picture books include: ‘Foley and Jem’ and ‘Robot Dog’, ‘Tom’s Clockwork Dragon’, ‘Monsters.

An owner’s guide’ and ‘Aliens. An owner’s guide’. Awards include: Gold for the TfL/SAA ‘Open Spaces’ poster award. Urban Entomology is Mark's (Post Modern) bow of respect to the Victorian tradition of insect collecting, where the decaying and disposed - the ‘litter’ of modernity, is assembled to create illusory collage. Mark painstakingly crafts each insect, and in opposition to the term 'litter' that he employs, much time and energy are given to sourcing interesting materials. The bugs have been exhibited internationally, and sold through various galleries across the UK, as well as through direct contact with the artist. How to Recycle Magazines into Jewelry. September 23rd, 2010 58Email 424 users recommend Experiment with various coil sizes, and even glue coils together! Diane Gilleland Magazine paper lends itself well to this colorful little project.

This pendant is made with parts of three different pages. There are tons of design possibilities... Photo: Diane Gilleland <prev1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 View all You can also use the bone folder (or butter knife) to flatten your coil. By the way, wash your hands between coils, because magazine print will often leave residue on your fingers. When your coil is done, or you've finished gluing several coils together, it's time to add finishing touches. Flip the coil over to the back. Press the cardstock over the glue, and allow to dry. Finally, install a jump ring and add your favorite chain, neckwire, or ribbon.

Portsmouth, UK-based artist Julie Alice Chappell creates beautiful miniature sculptures of insects using circuit boards found inside discarded electronics. "My art practice involves breaking down the pre-existing materials, reinterpreting them and offering them a new form with new purpose, creating something beautiful, whimsical and precious," she said. It all started several years ago when she came across a big box of tiny electronic components at the Beneficial Foundation in Portsmouth, otherwise known as the "The Craft Bank.

" The center receives unwanted items from various companies and they pass along these "hidden treasures" to schools, community groups and artists. "The first thing that came into my head when I looked at them was, 'a mass of tiny bodies and legs...ants! ' I took them home to my children and we made ants," she said. It was only years later, when she found the box again, that it sparked a new idea. Scrap Metal Art on Pinterest | Yard Art, Metal Art and Garden Art. Carl Sean McMahon | CSM Gallery & Studio.

Voici donc une réalisation de plus dans ce style, avec des engrenages rouillés et pleins de graisse, de la ferraille, des vieux papiers déchirés... C'est une carte 15 x 15 cm qui s'appelle Industrial Art.

Les engrenages ont été encrés aux encres Distress : Rusty Hinge et Black Soot. Bref, je me suis bien amusée et je suis assez contente du résultat concernant notamment les engrenages...

Scrap metal Morgan racer by James Corbett One man's junk is another man's art, at least it can be with a little work and a good eye. James Corbett of Australia is the latest example of an artist working in scrap metal and his pieces are pretty sweet. He uses parts of old cars to create all sorts of machines, animals and people and I think his metal work would look good on display most anywhere gearheads congregate. You don't need to be a gearhead to appreciate this work, but the transition from functional to artistic makes you look a bit longer before tossing those leftovers from your last project.

Metal Animals : les incroyables sculptures en métal recyclé, par Edouard Martinet. Buy work - Hubcapcreatures. EDOUARD MARTINET. John Lopez Studio. Igor Verniy : Sculptures Mécaniques - Unfamous Resistenza.

À l'ère de l'informatisation généralisée et des hautes technologies, il existe toujours des adeptes des techniques "old-school". Des nostalgiques du métal rouillé, des mécanismes et engrenages en tout genre et de l'odeur d'huile de moteur. Igor Verniy fait partie de ces gens là, il crée d'incroyables créatures à partir de morceaux de métaux, que la plupart des gens considèrent comme des déchets. Insectes, arthropodes, androïdes et autres créatures, ses créations issues d'un univers mêlant Steampunk & Cyberpunk sont articulées et uniques. -Comment en es-tu venu à pratiquer cet art ? Dès l’enfance, j’ai développé un esprit technique, mon père rapportait de son travail divers mécanismes qui ont toujours attiré mon attention.

Je n’avais pas besoin de jouets en plastique, c’étaient les objets en métal mon truc ! À 8 ans, j’ai créé mon premier jouet fait avec du métal (c’était seulement un montage à partir de fils de cuivre). -Quelles sont tes influences, inspirations ? -Tes projets ?
