Steampunk-inspired Assemblage Clocks by Yours Truly

I started making Steampunk-inspired clocks about a month ago using mixed metals, fabric and scrapbook paper.  This one is definitely my favorite so far and the only one I have kept for myself. The rose in the center of the clock mechanism acts as the second hand and rotates as the clock ticks. (You can see my posts about Steampunk scrapbook paper by Graphic 45 and Die Cuts with a View by clicking on the links.)

This clock was a gift for my sister-in-law because she collects vintage maps and loves to travel. (Please forgive the image quality. I’ve been messing with the camera settings for a while and I can’t get it to cooperate, but it is high time I got to post some of my own art!)

This last and most recent clock was a wedding gift for a friend.

  1. I like the idea of using the rose for a second hand, but the map clock’s definitely my favourite – there’s something so evocative about old-style maps.

    • I agree, maps are really compelling. There will definitely be more map compositions in my future 🙂

    • Thanks! I wish the color on the last one was better. The dark rectangle in the bottom right is actually a deep burgundy paper that looks like book leather.
