My journey to Steampunk was a natural progression from collecting and restoring all types of mechanical antiques, vintage machinery and old things in general. An early interest in any type of mechanical object saw me working on steam engines, historic aircrafts and old cars.
I had been collecting and restoring antique sewing machines for many years when a growing interest in Steampunk soon led me to build my first piece - a Steampunk flame thrower - from then on I’ve been hooked and have since created a range of tables and table and standing lamps. Where possible my lamps use a range of found objects and pipe as well as items bought specifically for their construction. Every lamp is unique, an individual hand crafted item. holding my first exhibition as part of a group exhibition at De La Liff in Adelaide in 2016.
