The Alchemyst's Clocktower

Imagine the clockwork inside this beauty...



"The Alchemyst's Tower" 2004-2008
Absolutely the most ambition project to date. It took many years to realize this automaton and care was used to make the advanced technology below stage adaptable in the future while keeping the figure itself purely mechanical. The Alchemyst is only 12" tall and consists of hundreds of hand machined brass and steel pieces. The tower itself consists of thousands of pieces was built from scratch out of wood, steel brass and fabric and just about any other high quality material where needed. The industrial machinery includes pneumatic valves, servos, clockwork, lighting and fountain (water) systems.

An amazing piece!
Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
