Dragonfly No 23
Completed January 26, 2017

This is a one of a kind, handmade clockwork Dragonfly made from the recycled parts of old watches.

His wings are made from antique silver and gold toned watch dials that have been cut, sanded, and curved into wing shapes, along with a balance wheel and gear for both structure and embellishment.

His legs were created with many different watch winding stems that have been cut into various sizes and soldered at the leg joints using silver bearing solder.

His body is a couple of watch plates and balance wheels soldered to a strap string at the thorax.

His head is a cut, sanded and shaped watch dial to which is soldered two identical winding stem knobs for eyes.

He alights on a model railroad track base that has been curved and soldered and that acts as a stand.

There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.

His dimension are 81mm wide, 62mm front to back, 74mm tall. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.
