I now present to you Gears, the curvy, grungy, foggy, gold follow up to the straight, shiny, clean, silver Nuts & Bolts.
Gears is built out of 1mm – 15mm in width watch parts, assembled with E6000 and placed on top of and in front of bendable, scrapbooking mirrors. The mirrors were sprayed with gold rubber stamp ink and the whole thing, structures included, was sprayed down with water.
Here are Nuts & Bolts and Gears side by side.
Nuts & Bolts is constructed in s similar manner, with staples, nuts, washers, screws and various other silver metal objects obtained from my dad’s tool box. It is also photographed on and in front of 2 mirrors.
I’m not sure what impresses me more, if your photographic skills or your ability to build so special object which becomes your photo subject.
This is one of the best compliments I’ve ever received. Thank you so much, Robert.
Fabulous as photographs!
Thank you :)
It’s pretty, is it a jeweller or a sculpture?
Sculpture basically. But really all built for the purpose of the photograph.
Wow, that’s a lot of tiny bits and pieces! Do you work with a scope, or jewelers’ lens? This must kill the eyes!
No scope or jewelers’ lens at the moment- but I can see that catching up to me as I get older. Although I do use tweezers to hold the pieces from time to time.
