Description

One of my table top creations. The name for this type of item is an ORRERY! Steampunk inspired but based in real historical science (the concept, not the actual system shown!). In real life it would be much larger and mechanical with moving gears and whatnot... a way to see the planets and other heavely bodies move around each other and their star no matter it it were our solar system or another.

In this case we must settle for a non moving minature replica of this far flung alien star system complete with miniature base in copper finish, white dwarf sun surrounded by three planetary bodies including main planets of various sizes and colors like earthen bronze and green. As a focal point you have any icy, silver and blue metallic finished comet with splaying and streaming tail (hey, it's all wood too!) passing between the solar system...

Each item is perched on a gracefully curved and bouncy wire in their orbits. Done in various metallic finishes. This item is about 4 1/2" tall.

And while this will work nicely on an flat surface it has a magnet hidden beneath and will work on any steady, VERTICAL surface (like my refrigerator there, but I would not recommend it on the door).

Made almost 100% from wood (sometimes with tiny amounts of other things) I paint and / or finish these with dark undertones and shading to highlight the details and then use layers of metallic and / or other coloring and finishes, making sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others).

While you're here consider browsing my many other pieces usually made mostly from wood including ray guns, robots, rockets, flying saucers, other vehicles, animals, diorama scenes, etc... made in various forms from tiny miniatures to full size replicas, jewelry like pendants, Christmas ornaments, magnets and others! I do retro, some straight hard science, steampunk, humorous and anything else that comes to mind...

These collectable pieces are generally meant for display or adult use and NOT for young children to play with. Do to their hand made and finished nature as well as the natural wood and materials used some variations are of course normal.

Please email rather than convos if possible for easy and flexible communication. I usually post my adddress in my store, so thanks. I gladly accept checks (USA) or money orders and cashier's checks! I take credit cards (usually directly as a merchant) -- if any other online options they will be listed in the emails I and Etsy will send buyers. All of the information you should need should be available right on the Etsy receipt as well as in these emails. I DO ship all over the world!!! Do to the variety of my merchandise and post office changes I may not be able to list shipping a head of time but am fair and feel free to contact me... I LOVE foreign orders!

Interested in a variation of what you see or an outright custom made piece at a fair price? Contact me for details.

Thanks for looking!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I take Etsy's own built in credit card system called Direct Checkout, plus several other methods for those that want including old fashioned checks and money orders, even bank transfers and Moneygram, Western Union and the like. I ship like any mail order "guy" after payment comes in, unless you want to make a layaway payment plan arrangement with me (write first before checking out in this case).

Returns & exchanges

If you want to be sure about damages covered for your order write to me about insurance, etc., but all wedding cake toppers and large orders are automatically insured. I cannot sell on approval.

Shipping policies

I generally ship by the post office, pretty quickly, though certainly not daily as I am in the studio so much of my time -- PLEASE allow enough time for your payment to get to me, the order to be processed and then delivery by the PO, etc., especially to foreign countries outside the USA -- which I am always HAPPY to ship to (please give me a phone number if you can that I can add to customs forms for their use, not mine)! If you need upgraded shipping write to me first.

Additional policies

Most of my sculptures are generally all wood, even if they or parts of them don't seem like it! Only the occasionally tiny misc. bit might be something else. The finishes are for the most part (some just to an extent) metallic, and while the charm of the wood can often be seem beneath most people marvel that these are not made from metal! So they're also pretty light weight, too, and the cake toppers sit beautifully and lightly on any cake!

I love to do custom works of all sorts and am happy to give quotes for anything from slight variations of existing items to all new, from scratch, giant sculptures or anything in between, for any occasion or whim! Note that I can often turn many of my items, if they are not already, into necklaces, pins, cufflinks or cake toppers, or leave them plain as a little miniature (often for no charge)! Just email me at buildersstudio@yahoo.com.

Also email if you have a sincere interest in wholesale or the like for a going concern of yours, or represent a gallery.

My collectible art pieces are generally not meant for young children to play with. Do to their handmade and finished nature as well as the natural wood and materials used some small amount of variations are of course normal.

Please note: All of my items are original designs by me and I retain all rights to them and no transfer in whole or part is ever implied or granted without my written consent and usually a fee. Items may not be copied in whole or part or their images used in any way. You are buying the item(s) only not the rights to duplicate them or their images. All of this is normal in the arts world but in todays digital computer craze I think it bears clarifying.
