Very nice. I never thought of steampunk and the deep sea going together, but I like the way it looks.

This is bloody beautiful! Amazing! These are one of those pieces you just take a glance, that's you need, and you already know it is undoubtedly awesome. When I get old enough, I promise I will purchase something from your Etsy. I hope you'll still be working about 5 years from now!!

I hope I will be too! I don't like working normal jobs so I need to keep paying my bills with the jewelry and sculpture.

These are fabulous. Any plans for adding some of the extinct species?

Not at the moment. I'm going to be doing some more of these but without the budget constraints of a commission, a squid, octopus, nautilus, and cuttlefish. Once I'm done those maybe I'll expand into some of the extinct cephalopods.

Of course I'm out of town for the first time I'm featured as a Daily Deviation. Wonderful surprise to come home to! Feeling a bit silly that I had a typo in the title the whole time (fixed now).

Absolutely superb pieces, full of brilliant clockwork detail and gleaming with ingenuity! There is a real plausibility to their anatomy and one can certainly imagine them speeding through the aquatic depths of some victorian nightmare!

These are great, I love the bronze effect.
I might suggest however editing your artist's statement to list them in order? Sure everyone knows (or could extrapolate) what an octopus is, but some my be confused as to which or what is a Nautilus...

There's not a whole lot of paint on them actually. Most of the color comes from different colors of polymer clay. I did however use some regular acrylics for the details and a clear gloss coat over the entire sculpture.
