Ah, and to think I considered tea, teapots and steampunkery spifftacular as individual concepts... Truly a match made in airpirate heaven. :tea: :salute: :heart:

No worries at all, mate! (Scuse the Australian-ism=P) I think the concept is absolutely brilliant - it brings to mind that Steampunk-ey Victorian age where you can imagine people drinking tea old British style, as well as the clock representing time and anachronism which is the absolute core component of Steampunk, and the gears obviously adding to the SP aesthetic =)

Plus it's handmade, and as sociologists love to tell us, steampunk is a social reaction against mass-production, and shows how we all look back to the age where even the most basic, everyday objects were made with love and craftsmanship... so it ticks all of the boxes as far as I'm concerned!

But more than that, it's fun, it's novel, it's fantastic to look at and it's really very ingenious =D

Wow! I didn't even think into it that much. I thought of the tea-time aspect (haha) but not the other stuff. nice interpretation :]
thanks! :]
