From the same artist who brought you FOIBLE, The Steampunk Dragon Robot, comes QUIRK, The Steampunk Baby Dragon. Creator Will Wagenaar continued his style of using recycled and repurposed antiques to create incredible sculptures, and QUIRK is made primarily from copper and brass to give him a distinctly steamy appearance.
QUIRK stands 19 inches tall and 23 to 25 inches long. His neck extends and his head can be rotated up and down. To check out more pictures, and to buy QUIRK from Mr. Wagenaar, please visit his etsy listing. And while you are there, be sure to check out the rest of the Reclaim2Fame storefront, which is focused entirely on creating art from recycled, repurposed, and reclaimed items.
There seems to be a never ending stream of cool Steampunk stuff on Etsy. You all know I love it for how simple it makes the search for quality hand-made goods. It’s inspired all sorts of people to take up crafting again.
A new addition to this dizzying storm of Steampunk goodness caught my eye today, and it’s so unique I had to share it with you.
FOIBLE is a Steampunk Dragon sculpture by artist Will Wagenaar. Made from entirely re-purposed parts, FOIBLE has Antique French binoculars for eyes and a dual clarinet exhaust system.
Unfortunately, despite her recycled heritage, FOIBLE will not be an inexpensive acquisition for the Steampunk who wishes to add her to their collection. At a steep 5,200 USD, she’s quite the investment.
