Liquid Light

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the “Steampunk” art movement.  If you aren’t familiar with Steampunk, it is a style of art that has its roots in the Victorian look.  Picture that busy style and add in a bunch of found objects, a touch of technology and a splash of science fiction.  Voila!  Steampunk.

Some Steampunk creations are a little creepy to me.  They include random metal parts, glass eyeballs from dolls, clothing – the range of “stuff” used in the artwork is amazing!  While I LOVE using found objects and repurposing items (I do it all the time with furniture and other items), I tend to have a simpler aesthetic.   However, I did find one artist whose work I could get on board with…

Liquid Light is a creation of California artist Tanya Clarke – and it is really interesting!  She uses repurposed plumbing parts and other metal objects and creates light fixtures from them.  But, the best part of each piece is the handmade glass “drip” coming from each pipe.

Clarke’s pieces have a great movement to them – I almost want to reach out to see if that drop of water is real.  Take a peek at her website.  Then leave a comment and let me know what you think!  What do you think of the Steampunk style?
