Steampunk Art

Well, we've looked at steampunk computers and fashions and crafts, so I thought today I'd post a random selection of steampunk art and lifestyle objects.

First of all, from Wikipedia, check out this illustration, "Maison tournante aérienne" (aerial rotating house) by Albert Robida for his book Le Vingtième Siècle, a 19th-century conception of life in the 20th century.

And here's a rather charming drawing from the Steampunk Magazine:

There are some amazing steampunk sculptures to oggle if not own. I rather like this one, Tim Wetherell's Clockwork Universe sculpture at Questacon, Canberra, Australia (September 24, 2009:

Or this strange object: Paul St George's Telectroscope installation at London City Hall (May 24, 2008):

Any arachnaphobes among us? If so, avert your eyes now from this rather beautiful Steampunk spider!

This is interesting: Decay of Time: steampunk art by Amazon Butterfly on Deviant Art...

And this, also on Deviant Art by - Steampunk Motorcycles

This is rather beautiful: a steampunk art nouveau pendant at

This from myths

And I'd love to own this: Steampunk_Watch_Floral_V2_by_Aranwen.jpg

Or go the whole hog with a totally steampunk home! 

In which you would have to have a table like this one at
800 × 395 - Dale Mathis Clockwork Table is apparently a “must-have” for any steampunk furniture collector

So, what do you love or hate out of these? Do you have a particular website or shop where you buy or just  lust after steampunk goodies?



  1. I love Herr Doktor's creations, and other wonderful gadgets whose creators' names I've forgotten, all of which were exhibited at last year's EasterCon.

  2. Great stuff!! I'd love to have a steampunk home with all kinds of gadgets and!!!

    And the clothes to go with it too.
