Clockwork Scorpion No 6 by AMechanicalMind Clockwork Scorpion No 6 by AMechanicalMind
custom order


A Clockwork Scorpion sculpture made completely out of recycled watch parts.


The body is made from antique watch faces (dials) that have been cut, shaped, sanded and soldered together into body segments.

The tail is also made with watch dials that have been soldered onto a watch spring, then soldered from the back. Watch stems and stem knobs decorate as well as strengthen the tail. The stinger is a watch winding stem.

The pincers and pincer arms are from curved, cut, sanded, and soldered watch faces and strap springs.

The legs are made of strap springs, along with small watch stems for the feet.

There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.

Dimensions: 39mm wide by 65mm front to back 60mm tall He comes with a 3" 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.

Gah. The out-of-focus area is kind of odd...
Might be better with one of those focus-less lens things...

This is great. Did you make a simpler model ahead of time to see how things would fit or go right at it?

I pretty much went right at if after looking at some pictures online to get the basic design in my head. This is the first one, which I've kept: [link] It's a bit messy, and not the right number of legs. Basically, I doodle with metal.

That just made this more impressive. If I did something like this I would have to go through a long process of training for it ahead of time & if I mess up I would probably have to restart again.

I think I'll just enjoy seeing this one.:D
