"When we realized that the crawling invertebrates in Io's deeper mud pits had an iron-based internal support system, a kind of iron-oxide space lattice, our biochemists went amuck. The need for expensive ceramic and titanium-alloy based prosthetics would be over...

...since these organism's immune system was tolerant to iron and steel. The business potential was huge.Thus, in 2093 the first series of hybrid-agents (as we called them) appeared in the markets. With a fully functional biological nervous system and digestive track, motorized mechanical parts plus double-shell high-density silica foam carapace, we had ourselves the perfect soldier. Or so we thought...."

Small story I conjured up, after making the critter. It's supposed to be a living creature bound to a mechanical contraption, in order to be used a fearless/resilient/obedient soldier. Its supposed size is more or less like a cat. The size of the real-world sculpture is closer to that of a rat :P

I used water based acrylics to paint it and -as usual- it's made out of junk. Check my gallery for the unpainted assembled version (since I've forgotten how to post a link to it...d'oh).

"In the Underworld your skin feels numb, there is no sense of heat or pressure...Remember that sound is muffled as if you were immersed in water, and normal vision isn't of much help either....
With the etheroscope you can see the nether things,
and we have also incorporated a Morse-Radio unit to communicate with the expedition.
Wear it at all times.
But be warned: do not -for any reason- remove the breather unit. Inhaling Ether will stupefy you forever, and trap your mind in the realm of half-light...."

This is the Etheroscopion (Etheroscope), made out of standard goggles and junk, and painted with acrylics. I only need to attack a leather strap to it, so it can be normally worn.

Unpainted version: unpainted goggles

Another view: goggles up
Yet another: goggles down
Side view: side

I made this little guy together with the centipede-like critter. He was just a test subject for some new techniques :D
He's made of caps, knobs, cables, wires, odd pieces of plastic and a bead. Most of him is -as usual- junk.

His name is Rupert, and his story will come with the painted version.

Welcome sirs, to the NEW generation of CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY in personal equipment, designed, produced and hand picked from the company with the people's interests in mind: STILING CO.

The latest in our range:

STILING CO. ENGINEER'S SCRIBE

At STILING CO. our main concern is that of our fellow engineers and entrepreneurs, for this reason I present the latest creation the ENGINEER'S SCRIBE.

Tired of having to constantly dip your nib, when you are in the midst of noting down you most ENGENIUS marvel yet? WE HAVE IT COVERED. The gents at the patent office will be AGHAST at how FAST you will be throwing your inventions at them. With its AUTOMATICALLY FED ink chamber and FULLY ADJUSTABLE riveted system, the ENGINEER'S SCRIBE will not only able you to write continuously, but PRESS ON with your work AT THE SAME TIME. Furthermore, the materials and construction methods make the scribe virtually INDESTRUCTABLE, a pressing concern when working vigerously with copius amounts of GUNPOWDER, just like STILING CO.

A pair of intention tools made with antler and quartz crystals. About seven and eight inches long. The crystal on the left is an orangy-surfaced type called "tangerine quartz", while the one on the right has a surface speckled with tiny black spots (I forget what that's called).

Intention tool made from an antler tine, about eight inches long; "top" and "side" views (orientation is arbitrary).

Carved and stained, a quartz crystal (containing a dark, "mossy" inclusion) set into one end, with black glass microbeads used as filler. Two cloudy glass bead "eyes" are set in the sides, and there is an internal chamber behind the crystal and between the eyes so that the eyes glow faintly when light shines into the crystal.

Something I'm making for someone special.
It's a clock, made of various houshold/thrown materials.
You can probably spot the twigs, cables, gears, plactic cups, and the reused real clocks ofcourse...!
The large metal frame is from an old fan, an the "moon" is a polystyrene ball covered in glue and ash.
It'll be painted with acrylics soon, but I thought I'd upload the unpainted version too, so you can spot all the junk in it :D
There are supposed to be three clocks, one for the hours, one for the minutes and one for the seconds.

ps: hope I'll be able to update soon
ps2: sorry for the bad pic, I wasn't supposed to upload this, but what the heck :)
ps3: I haven't made the hands yet
