Old Watch Parts Recycled Into Steampunk Sculptures By Susan Beatrice
Susan Beatrice is an artist who recycles old vintage watch parts and turns them into beautifully intricate sculptures. This true jack-of-all-trades is also a talented sand sculptor and painter, and uses her many talents to perfect her watch sculptures.
Beatrice writes that her recycled sculptures are “Earth-friendly and artistic items sensitive to the limits of our natural resources.”
Even if you’re not a die-hard steampunk fan, you’ll still be able to appreciate the incredibly fine and meticulous craftsmanship that goes into Susan Beatrice’s miniature steampunk artwork. Beatrice recycles or “upcycles” old watch parts, turning them into fantastical artistic creations that are brimming with industrial-era Victorian mythos.
Part of the appeal of her work is her ability to pull elegant and organic forms out of rigid and lifeless machinery. Gears, ratchets, and other miniature technical watch innards are skillfully crafted into a horse’s neck, a graceful woman, or even a lion’s face. Some of the pictures showcasing the artist’s work feature her hand, which highlights on just how small of a scale she works.
Susan Beatrice runs a website, All Natural Arts. It’s definitely worth visiting, as these steampunk creations are only a few of the many diverse and eclectic works that the artist has created. She can also be found on Facebook.
