Joyce Brown, Curator, says, “According to eHow, Steampunk art mixes modern ideas and technology with those from the past, namely the Victorian Era.  The genre started with literature but has since evolved to include all art forms.  Steampunk materials are often things found in an old science lab, dumpster or antique shop.  Lots of wood, copper, brass, steel, iron and other heavy metals comprise many of the pieces.  Watch parts, clockworks, rivets, springs, gears and other machinery parts are often incorporated.”

 The artists in the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery search out both the unique and the mundane elements to recycle into their works of art.  This is truly an ecological, earth friendly expression.

Karen McGovern, founder of Beadkeepers.com is an avid Steampunk artist.  Gathering doll parts, metal cast-offs, dials, butterfly wings, insects, old jewelry and machine parts (only a small sampling of what she collects) Karen comes up with original and desirable jewelry adornments for all parts of the body. Her skill in combination of these objects is unique. It would be unlikely you would find a work of art comparable in design and quality to hers. Karen incorporates mixed and repurposed materials, copper and brass pipe and sheet into her designs, along with found objects, antiquities and botanicals.  She donates sales proceeds from her work to the Rare Species Foundation, her organization which works to save rare species from around the planet from extinction.

Kelly Dean Manganaro is a natural born SteamPunk, mixed media artist.  Before the term evolved Kelly collected wood and metal parts, stone and cement, and crafted them into enormous sculptures that make impactful statements outdoors and indoors.  Drawing from his family’s artistic genes, he uses his welding and construction skills to make works that are often wired electrically with light that plays a part in the overall presentation.  An antique dealer as well as sculptor, Kelly is privy to wonderful found objects, a dramatic source in many of his creations.

Theo Sable is new to the concept of SteamPunk, mixed media, but many of the works she creates fall well within the category.  An actress, recently published poet and sculptor, Theo’s SteamPunk side emerges in the wonderful metal worked jewelry she creates.  A gem designer in the jeweler’s district in New York, Theo incorporates all of her skill and expert metal work designs into this SteamPunk collection.
