Industrialized Kettle Sculptures

The Techno Steampunk Teapot Forges Mechanics with Tea Time

— November 16, 2012 — Art & Design
Lovers of the industrialized phenomenon taking over the globe are bound to take a liking to the Techno Steampunk Teapot sculpture. The item is hand crafted by Richard Symons to look like a 19th century post apocalyptic brewing tea canister.

Symons uses the outline of a ceramic teapot and cast resin to create the mechanic details that wrap around the body of the structure. The teapot is crafted into a mechanical marvel, complete with four step pipes that poke out at the top of the lid and an engine stationed in the back. If you were hoping to acquire a spot of tea from this bronze Techno Steampunk Teapot, you are unfortunately out of luck. It is for display purposes only.
