I collect penguins, sculpt Paperclay dolls & figures, and love steampunk. I guess it was inevitable that when I finally got around to making a collectible for myself, it was going to be a steampunk penguin.
Since penguins are flightless, I thought it logical that if a penguin were to invent anything steamy, it would be a set of wings.
He’s sculpted entirely by hand, without the use of any molds, his wings are canvas, and he has several little watch gears built into his invention. He’s about 3″ tall.
He was so much fun, that now I’m thinking of doing a whole collection of steamy beasts – all I need are some good ideas. What would animals choose to invent? Would a turtle want speed? Would a cat desire a better mousetrap?
