My Heart Ticks by monsterkookies My Heart Ticks by monsterkookies
Yeay! I finally got to upload one of my favourite designs!

I am truly excited about this piece, and it certainly won't be my last piece of Industrial work. It was very much so inspired by my love of Industrial art and music. Favourites being Throbbing Gristle and Skinny Puppy. :D I LOVE looking at old warehouses, factories, and Industrial areas... all the scrap metal and old rivets, cogs, gears, pulleys - it's really interesting.

This is an Industrial anatomically correct human heart pendant. It is complete with everything that makes the heart beat, except this heart does not bleed, for it does not have veins and arteries. It has been replaced with an intricate interior of gears and watch parts.

It is silver polymer clay dusted in silver powder in some spots to give it the look of worn silver. It is complete with grooves and rivets to make it look like it is a series of panels all connected together.

There are three sections in which the panels have been removed: a small piece on the back, exposing some gears, a large piece on the front exposing even more pieces and gears, and a small piece on the side exposing some cylindrical metal pieces and a coil I made from mechanical wire. On the right side, there is a few watch knobs to complete the effect.

On top is a large series of valves that have been dusted with silver and gold to give the look of worn brass and silver, as well. All grooves have been rubbed with black "oil" to give it that greased and used look, and to give it a lot more depth.

What do you think?!

My Heart Ticks by =monsterkookies. An anatomical heart made out of polymer clay and the suggester said that, "It is most probably the best polymer clay piece I have ever laid eyes on." Best seen in fullview. ( Suggested by PORGEcreations and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

IT'S SO AWESOME! I reminds me a lot of a heart from a book called "Jack et la mechanique du coeur" ("Jack and the cuckoo clock heart").Heart:happybounce: I am a dummy!

Okay, it seems funds won't be allowing
right away, but I did feature you on
my front page as promised.

:)

When funds DO allow (some day), a couple
of your blackmaille designs caught my eye
and would just truly WOW my Special Lady.

:nod: true story

(PS: what are the freaking odds that I would
randomly come across someone who actually MAKES
what I've been trying to figure out how to
design in my head!?!?)

This one is truely a masterpiece of industrial art.
I'm not certain, but if I think about it my heard should look a lot like this. I'm also a huge fan of everything industrial, also of the beauty of decay.
However, I'd prefer a darker tint or colour accents more brown or black for highlighting the dark soul of industry.
Do you actually sell those masterpieces ?
I'd love to have one!
