Adam’s Effy

A steampunk inspired sculpture of a 1977 Ford F100, commissioned by Lisa Bruce for Adam Taylor’s birthday.

It’s made from a vintage gold-filled pocket watch case, crown, and bow, porcelain enamelled pocket watch face, pocket and wristwatch and clock parts, brass copper and glass.

The case is made from recycled copper, aluminium, recycled hinges and catch and velvet. The wood is from a panel from a Tait train circa 1909 (aka “Red Rattler”!), complete with original paint, which I’ve sealed with clear coat.

I’ve etched the grill and the number plate – my first try at etching!

I tried to get the truck to look like it’s driving out of the watch.
