Steampunk is our past and our future! It was slippery slope, the first time I cracked the back off a broken watch and started playing with the pieces. The mix of metals, shapes, and mechanical workings drew me down the rabbit hole, and I have been happily lost there for years. Society is waxing nostalgic, for the world we were promised by those late 19th century writers, and my work satisfies that longing.
