Materials

pewter, brass, bronze, nickel silver, steel, wood, paper

The S P Nautilus is a framed, wall hanging, interactive sculpture with 4 moving parts. The periscope goes up & down AND forward & starboard, and trim tab control arm moves forward & aft, making the trim tab go up & down and, of course, the propeller spins (AllPropellersSpin).

The Nautilus itself is made primarily of pewter with brass, bronze and nickel silver. The frame (which is part of the piece) is steel, brass, wood & matting. The frame is approximately 12 x 8 inches [35 x 20cm]; the Nautilus is approximately 6 1/2 inches [17 cm] long.

The sculpture was made from raw metal stock using traditional metal smithing techniques. Among them: sawing, filing, grinding, chasing & repoussé, soldering, welding & brazing. The frame was made from steel, brass, brass screws, hanging hardware and matting using traditional metal smithing techniques and using basic wood working techniques.

This is the newly re-worked SP Nautilus. It has a new finish and the framing has been updated. (11.22.16).

S P Nautilus steampunk sculpture - inspiration

SteamPunk promoter Bruce Rosenbaum asked me if I wanted to be part of a SteamPunk art show that was to be part of a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea interactive exhibit to be installed adjacent to the big football stadium in Foxboro Massachusetts. I thought that it sounded like a great idea and had been wanting to make a larger scale piece anyhow, so, yes!


S P Nautilus steampunk sculpture - the story

The story, of course, is Jules Verne's classic tail of underwater adventure. To develop my own design of what the Nautilus should look like, I watched all three films made from his book. The two newer movies featured subs with great ramming armatures. All had a large viewing window, and a periscope and other usual submarine features. What I finally developed favored the version in the 1916 silent film, but also borrowed from the others and included my own touches.

The piece was completed in time and was included in the exhibit, formally titled: “Nemo’s Steampunk Art & Invention Gallery” located at Patriot Place, Foxboro, MA in 2010.

The piece also made an appearance at Steamcon III 2011 (which had a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea theme) and in New York City at the Steampunkinetics show (AFA Gallery) in 2012.
