Obsidian (III. watch parts creature) by AMechanicalMind
Obsidian (III. watch parts creature)
buy:  www.etsy.com/listing/208427611…

Obsidian
Completed October 24, 2014


Obsidian is a one of a kind creature made completely of recycled watch parts

His body is made from many different brass gears and watch plates that have been soldered together into a sort of ribcage. His spiky spine was produced from several watch winding stems. Shoulder blades made from cut, shaped and sanded watch dials protect his back. Obsidian's arms and legs are made from a variety of soldered watch stems, gears, plates, strap springs, and embellished with cut watch dials. His head and jaw are composed of cut and shaped watch faces, with eyes of strap springs. His head is able to swivel quizzically.

Obsidian is soldered together using silver bearing, lead free solder. No glue was used in the creation of this piece.

Dimensions: 84mm wide, 86mm fingers to toes, and 24mm tall He comes with a 4" by 4" glass dome with walnut base for display. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.

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.
