In an every day scenario of receiving mail, it can become fairly common to automatically discard an envelope, and in most cases only seek to review the contents within. For Stephen Sollins this, however, would not be the case. He has taken paper envelopes that would otherwise be stacked high at trash sites and has instead recycled and transformed them into lovely traditional quilts that use geometric forms as patterns.
With a fascination for machines, especially those with wheels, similar to the ones found in Clockwork Love Jewelry, Bradley N. Litwin discovered his passion for the function surrounding mechanical design. He is inspired not only by the beauty of the geometric relationships of each moving part, but also in how they are assembled and juxtaposed, as predicated by their function within a system, and the evolution of mechanical design.
From that passion he has developed MechaniCards®, which are miniature, hand-operated, kinetic sculptures, designed and produced in limited edition. This piece, Steampunk Valentine, is the second MechaniCard® design introduced in 2013. It is a combination of Victorian mechanophilia and futuristic fantasy, in a timeless and plaintive pursuit of romantic bliss.
