Steampunk on Sunday : What's better than a message in a bottle?



A machine in a wine glass!

When I first saw these videos,
I thought they were digital animation.

But no!

These are real!


Syzmon Klimek make tiny
steampunkery devices
from brass and bronze.


Then, he puts them into
wine glasses.




I don't really need to add anything else.

    1. Aren't they though? I was so thrilled when I realised this wasn't some fancy computer graphic. There were really things! They'd make a wonderful steampunk heart.

    1. That's just what I thought! So tiny and delicate! And solar powered, which is cool, too!

  4. What a wonderful find. The world of miniatures is one of perfectionism as any tiny error can flaw these miniature wonders. I also like ornately decorated pocket watch movements, especially fusees and grand complications, as well as miniature firearms and tiny operational trains (N gauge), now I have something new to be on the lookout. The craftsmanship of all of these is tremendous. Thanks for sharing the miniature engine videos.

    There’s a Miniature Firearms Society: http://www.miniaturearms.com/Links.html

    N gauge trains: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N_scale

    And Z gauge trains, which are even smaller: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z_scale

    Fusee watches: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusee_%28horology%29 and http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?76903-Early-Mid-1700s-Verge-Fusee-Pocket-Watch

    These are some larger (working) model engines than the jewel you show on your blog. http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/KnappCol.htm
