Le cube de l'industrie by ArtbugCarl Le cube de l'industrie by ArtbugCarl
I present to you "The cube of industry". This OOAK, 6" square box displays a wonderful collection of items representing our industrial and technological growth.

Pine with a dark walnut finish.
A brass compass/sundial tops the lid which opens to access switches, batteries and room for personal belongings.

With its functioning quartz clock, plasma plate, flickering furnace, copper and metal accents, this is a beautiful conversation piece to ponder over.

Here's the link to my etsy page

I'm not sure the video does it as much justice as your still pic(s).  Such a magical piece!  Auugghhh!  Did you sell it??  A little secret: If I won the lottery or something, this was going to be my first purchase!!  ;-p  Well, if you did, congrats!!  :)

I appreciate the input and flattery. I just wanted to show all sides clearly and functioning. Sadly I have not sold it yet so keep buying those lottery tickets and keep me posted ;)

Words cannot satiate the truth in any words that I can put forth with an incredible art piece. Practical, Functional, and a bit of genius. Being an RPG nut and doing so since Atari and the like pieces like these scream to the inner dreamer within all of us. I love to be pleasantly surprised and just be put in a "Wow" like trance (look at the double joke there. XD).

Steampunk, treasure, art, all great to describe a piece like this but to be honest if I ever had the money of the unlimited variety, this would find my heart.. *Waggles cutely* Heee. Great stuff!~

Extremely flattered by your critique and praise of this piece. It is by far my greatest creation but I'm not stopping there. My pieces are slowly growing larger and more unique each time and its comments like yours that help feed the drive to continue. Thank you very much for your kind and inspiring words.

Too cool for school--or industry, for that matter. This not only looks like a great steampunk piece, I could see it in a Dwemer ruin in Skyrim (a video game I play.)

What an excellent thing to say. My daughter plays that game. Love watching her play and NOW I too can see it there. Thanks for saying that. Normally I tend to relate my pieces with Bioshock but I like your Skyrim connection :)

My boys are much better at it than I but I've accomplished a run-through and have many other quests to finish. The dwemer ruins petrify me when I have to go in them, but the stuff I find (that isn't attacking me) is fantastical. Well, the machina that are attacking me are quite fantastical, too, I just don't have time to admire them. But yeah, I could really see your cube as some excellent quest piece that could play a part in saving all of Tamriel.
