Articulated Watch Parts Creature "Eight"
created February 7, 2019

Eight is a fully articulated and poseable imaginary creature sculpture made completely from recycled watch parts. He has been soldered together with lead free, silver bearing glue in this piece.


Eight features a neck that rotates and tilts, shoulders that swivel, rotate, and tilt, elbows and wrists that swivel and rotate, as well as knees, ankles, and hips that rotate and tilt.


Eight's outer skin and head are made with watch dials that have been cut and sanded to shape. He also has eyes made of spring bars. His interior skeleton is made with many different watch parts. Bones are watch spring bars connected to various wheels and cogs. He has a spine made from watch stems, and 'organs' of watch gears and plates. All of his joints were made with cut spring bars that have been soldered into moveable joints with different axes of twist. Fingers and toes are winding stems.


This sculpture has taken around 30 hours of intricate work to complete.


Eight stands about 2.5 inches tall.

Very impressive to say the least.

How long did this metal monkey sculpture take to put together if I might ask (Just curios if so)?

"Clears His Throat". Anyway. A Great job done on the sculpture good sir. I do hope you have a wonderful week and God bless you.
