I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Small ceiling fixture on eBay
Remember Gary and his Steampunk Sink Alcove? I just got an email from him showing off his newest creation, a ceiling lamp fixture, and letting me know he's selling a second one on eBay.
Brass, copper, wood, glass, crazy wiring -- it has a definite mad scientist appeal.
