Nemo's Gyro by ou8nrtist2 Nemo's Gyro by ou8nrtist2
This is what I imagine Captain Nemo's gyroscope on the Nautilus would look like...Jules Verne's stories have always been a great inspiration for me and my work:

All welded stainless steel.
The 6 rings enclosing the gazing ball are all recycled laser-cut parts. the gazing ball is 4 inches in diameter and is also painted stainless steel(recycled).

This piece is available for purchase.
Please note me for pricing.

The hardest part is choosing just one and it may be imposible as the work of ou8nrtist2 is all exceptional.

Aw thank you,
That particular piece is for sale for $399.
I confess I am often frustrated that the very people who most appreciate my work cannot afford it...

That's quite reasonable actually!
But with moving and needing more urgent stuff right now like a washing machine etc, I'll have to be content with looking at the pretty picture...
I'll keep an eye and maybe ask if something catches my eye when I'm more economically sound.

great job as usual Stephen, I like the idea of 'found art' & recycling. Steampunk lends itslef perfectly to this medium, so really no two pieces are exactly alike :)

really? its probably quite subjective though. i mean, unless Jules Verne himself drew it...

theres only so much specific detail you can get from a book...

True,
It may well be Verne's original design,I'll have to ask my friend, who is rather over the top with anything Vernesque...

It's only 12" high. Is the shot misleading size wise?
