Thomas (articulated watch parts creature) back
Articulated Creature No 4 "Thomas"
www.etsy.com/listing/500157699…

Thomas is the third fully articulated and poseable imaginary creature sculpture made completely from recycled watch parts. He has been soldered together with lead free, silver bearing solder...no glue in this piece.

Thomas features a neck that rotates and tilts, shoulders that swivel, rotate, and tilt, elbows and wrists that swivel and rotate, as well as knees, ankles, and hips that rotate and tilt.

Thomas's outer skin and head are made with watch dials that have been cut and sanded to shape. He also has eyes made of spring bars.

His interior skeleton is made with many different watch parts. Bones are watch spring bars connected to various wheels and cogs. He has a spine made from watch stems, and 'organs' of watch gears and plates. All of his joints were made with cut spring bars that have been soldered into moveable joints with different axes of twist. Fingers and toes are winding stems.

This sculpture has taken around 30 hours of intricate work to complete.

For more pictures of this fellow, please see: www.facebook.com/amechanicalmi…

Thomas stands about 2.5 inches tall.

All creations made by A Mechanical Mind are one of a kind, never to be reproduced exactly. All parts are soldered, never glued. Sculptures are not toys and should be handled sparingly, as their parts are tiny and delicate.

AMechanicalMind's Profile Picture
AMechanicalMind
Justin Gershenson-Gates
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Chicago, IL I am Justin Gershenson-Gates, the thinker and assembler behind A Mechanical Mind. The grandson of a railroad man, the son of a gearhead, my life has been filled with all things mechanical. As a child, I would take my toys apart in order to see how they worked, but was never able to put them back together again. Now, I take dead old watches from the top drawers of the world, and rearrange their bits and widgets into whimsical designs.

My aim is to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass. My pieces display the more delicate and ephemeral side of gears, rather than the cold, hard factory feel they normally portray. Please contact me at jmg@amechanicalmind.com or jmg.amechanicalmind@gmail.com with any questions you may have.
