Steampunk Goggles


Here’s a series of Limited Edition Goggles, specially crafted for some of the generous donors who contributed to the Steampunk metalwork show I curated back in May.  Only three sets in this edition – and all spoken for already!  But I’m really proud of the way they turned out and I’m delighted to share the results.

Materials:  Reclaimed copper pipe; recycled automotive acrylic; recycled glass lenses; brass sheet, wire, and tube; copper mesh; micro-fasteners; recycled leather and found objects.

    Thanks! And, with apologies to anyone who had to witness the thrashing about as I got this post to load properly. Heh.

    Wow. Those are probably the best goggles I’ve seen. I love the edge detail.
