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.

One of the things I love about steampunk is that it blends opulence -- antiques, velvet, dark saturated colors -- with industrial roughness. These lights by Tanya Clarke are a good example -- she combines recycled plumbing pieces with hand sculpted glass drops and lights the whole thing with LEDs.
Whimsical and fun!

I found the website beautiful, but confusing. Can normal people buy these?
Wow! These are wonderful.
These are a great find. However oddly enough I found This site shortly thereafter... Immitation/flattery and all that rubbish!
This looks like condoms filled with water, nothing more actually.
Wow coming to comment and see my buddy Art!!
I have never seen lights like this in my life. Maybe I live in a cave. These are extraordinary!!
Just another copy of my Light Drop design, from 2007.
