All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

There is something almost magical about the complexity of clockworks.1. CURIOSITY SERIES No 2 'Clockwork' - piggiespinion
2. Delve -- an original oil painting, framed - paynesgrey
3. The Engine Fine Art Giclee print - kirikomoth
4. Clockwork Dragon LE Print - ColorsmithArt
Dark and Gothic or sepia toned steam, the clockwork as an element in a piece of art adds both mystery and complexity. Just as unfathomable as modern technology is to the masses, gears spinning in a ballet seem more like magic than engineering. I have great respect for those who understand their inner workings. For now I shall appreciate them in the form of photos and art, from the super talented Paynesgrey who I've admired for quite sometime to these new pieces just recently discovered.
