Author: | Categories: Art, Steampunk No comments
One of the reasons that I hesitate to use the word "artist" in reference to myself is the fact that I have a talented sister who embodies that cognomen.  Today I have the singular pleasure of introducing you to the works of the very talented Morgaine von Slatt! Morgaine

Author: | Categories: Art No comments
A few days ago, NIMBY, a warehouse near and dear to my heart, survived a fire. However, due to the fire, the owner of the building has decided not to renew their lease. They are now trying to find a new space. NIMBY is an amazing place- Alan Rorie,

Tonight!! Opening in Seattle: ANACHROTECHNOFETISHISM

Author: | Categories: Art, Steampunk No comments
Long before the age of the internet, and well before the cold efficiency of the assembly line, existed fantastic and terrible machines, run on hope, sweat, and steam. It was a time in which form and function lived in sin, and everyman was a revolutionary. We are 13 American

The Time Jumper : A Victorian dress made from a military surplus parachute

I’ve been exceedingly jealous of my friends on the West Coast for the seeming predominance of Steampunkery out there.  However, I am feeling better and better on that front as I slowly discover the many talented artists in and about my home state of Massachusetts. This marvellous confection is

Author: | Categories: Art No comments
Liam Mcnamara built The Clockworks for the Burning Man festival waaay back in 2005. A 3 story tall all wooden, working, click-tocking time-keepin’ clocktower, and then burned it to the ground at the end of the week. Yes, even the clockwork gears were CNC routed out of wood.  It
