Lurker
Completed February 17, 2014


Lurker 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. Stalker's arms and legs are made from a variety of soldered watch stems, gears, plates, and strap springs. His head and jaw are composed of cut and shaped watch faces, with eyes of strap springs and ears of watch plates and gears. His head is able to swivel quizzically.

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

Dimensions: 34mm wide, 42mm head to tail, and 44mm 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.

Beautifully done!  Love the claws in his hands.  I can't quite imagine soldering all those tiny pieces, and getting him in that dynamic a pose.

Excellent job on the photography too!  Not sure what material you have him on, but it works really well as it fades off to dark in the distance.
