30 Days # 14. Steampunk Cat

I’ve been working on this one on and off between the forget-me-nots.

I wanted a fantasy steampunk feel to this one… Not the standard Victorian based version. So I gave the cat a little bit of an exotic coloring – it’s loosely based on a Somali or long-haired Abyssinian. The cat’s eye is a rough faceted green aventurine.

I handpainted my own set of symbols on the clock. And obviously it’s in some part of the story realms where they keep track of more than 12 segments of time. And where cats wear wings – just because they can.

The gears and workings from the clock were from molds of various pieces I’ve collected, plus a few I handsculpted to connect the elements together.

The piece is 6 inches tall and framed in a handmade hardwood octagonal frame.
