Steampunk and Stone

I’m thrilled to announce that Louise at Carlisle Art has offered me the opportunity to display and sell my creations at her wonderful store in Benalla, Victoria! After many delays due to COVID, we were finally able to set up the displays. A variety of pieces, both jewellery and sculpture are available, in good time for Christmas shopping. Louise has a wonderful range of art supplies, does internet sales and couldn’t be more helpful if you have a query or need her to track down any arty needs.
Benalla has a growing reputation as an arts area, with many murals in town, a great gallery, good food and accomodation available.
What are you waiting for? Get up there and buy my stuff (oh, and Louise’s too!😁)

“Eclipse”
Variegated Tiger Eye, vintage sterling silver watch case, antique silver fob watch chain.
52mm x 40mm approximately

When I bought this amazing variegated Tiger Eye, I wanted to display it in a unique setting. This broken antique silver pocket watch case was remodelled to do that job. Missing one of the outer lids, I remover the remaining one, I cut it down and set it within the frame, then used the inner lid as the mount for the stone. Light play within the Tiger Eye can be seen by moving the pendant. (Video in comments)

“Dragon Flight”
Masonry drill bit, speaker grill, copper contacts, brass dome nut, rescued screws, recycled brass tube, bolts, coat hangers, copper wire, computer hard drive discs, red gum.
420mm x 200mm x 250mm approximately.

This piece started with a discarded Kango 8mm masonry drill bit, found discarded on a railway platform. It looked like the basis of a dragonfly to me, and after much fiddling, cutting, fastening, some rude words and a couple of donations of my DNA in the form of the red bodily fluid, here it is!
The dragonfly head is a vintage brass dome nut, with old screws for eyes. The wings are cut from a steel speaker grid, with the paint taken back, polished and a tracery of veins engraved over the mesh. The legs, rescued electrical contacts from a discarded piece of equipment are riveted to a piece of brass tubing taken from a broken desk lamp. To mount the dragonfly, I’ve made reeds from old metal coat hangers, rusty bolts and repurposed copper wire. These, in turn are mounted on a recycled piece of red gum, with computer hard drive discs used to represent ripples on the water over which dragonflies hover.
Dragonflies are amazing insects, not dangerous to people, even though they do inspire terror in some. They can exist in their larval stage for up to five years, befor maturing into an adult, who’s lifespan may then last from a few days, up to ten weeks. They are amazing, fast fliers and often display a metallic sheen, sometimes with dramatic colours. Their wetland habitats are under threat, which in turn, threatens their populations.
This piece is destined for display (and hopefully sale!) at Carlisle Art in Benalla, with numerous other creations of mine, as soon as our lockdown lifts.

“Dark Heart”
Amethyst, Opal Matrix, Sterling Silver
17mm x 20mm approximately

This project started out with the intention of in laying an opal heart within the potch (opal stone, without the colours). All went well until the inset of the opal, when a big chip came off! Rather than waste the effort that went into making the big heart, I searched in vain for another suitable piece of opal. I then found a piece of amethyst, and had my first try at shaping and polishing that. The photo shows the flaws, but it actually looks better in real life. The amethyst hides within its’ dark frame until the sunlight hits it and refracts back through, showing the internal structure of the purple stone. I’ll definitely be playing with amethyst again!

“Listening Skills”
Vintage pocket watch & clock parts
32mm x 24mm approximately
Update: “Sold!”

A quick sketch of a bat in my ideas book evolved into this little fellow. His wings are a watch plate saved from a broken Elgin pocket watch and his body and head are shaped from an old alarm clock winder. His little feet are cut from two pocket watch gears. The whole piece is held together with two brass rivets. With ears like this, you’d have to be a good listener, right?
