About

If you are fascinated by steam power, as much as I am, then step into my steam-powered workshop and have a look around. Be warned, Ladies and Gents, to mind your skirts and coat tails as you pass by the hot fire in the old forge and the whirling flywheels and cross-heads of the steam engines!

Make yourself at home! You'll find the kettle over there, and in that old tin, you'll find some perfectly-good English Breakfast Tea. Now. . . if you fancy something stronger, there's a brown bottle on the top shelf. No, no, not that one. That's rat poison. You'll be wanting the tall bottle on the left. You can rest yourself on that stool & stay as long as you like. I always enjoy good company.

~~~~~ A Modicum Of My Historical Background~~~~~

The Shop may seem a wee bit dark and noisy to you, but this is the world of machines. It takes these machines to forge and fire the artistic creations that I toil to produce for the True Steampunk Connoisseur.

As it happens, I emanate from generations of Scientific Inventors (some might say "Mad") and skilled craftsmen, and began my professional life as a chemistry, physics and biology professor. However, I soon learned that I am truly happiest when tasking my mind and my hands, and I do so love the Victorian era and the mechanics of machines . . . hence, my affection for all things Steampunk!

~~~~~ Why Victorian Curiosities? ~~~~~

As we know, Victorians had a fascination for curiosities, oddities, contraptions and rarities, and definitely possessed a flair for displaying them for others to ogle. I want to provide you with wearable art that will make passersby do a little ogling too!

Be sure to check back often because I will be adding new "Curiosities" on a constant basis, and as always, please feel free to ask any questions, because I am always happy to help.

Again, thank you for taking your time to visit Victorian Curiosities, where you are always welcome!

Kindest regards, Professor Kelly / Proprietor
