Thinker
Completed May 27, 2014


Thinker 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. Thinker'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 and ears of watch plates and gears. His head is able to swivel quizzically. In his hand he holds a tiny fly made from a cut gear, watch stem, and two small cogs.

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

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.

It kind of looks like one of those things on Zelda Twilight Princess.
