Steampunk Inventions By John Bunce.

Steampunk Inventions By John Bunce.

John Bunce reveals on his about page how he loved making things, as a child, with the parts from old electrical appliances and over stuff he sourced. This was at a time, he explains, when people were replacing things like valve set T.V.’s and cast iron household goods for shiny new transistorised plastic stuff.

From there, John went on to have a fantastic career as a design consultant and teacher.

But know devotes his time making “Steampunk Machines”. “Steampunk is brilliant, as it combines my love of old machinery”, he says.

“I really admire the ingenuity of Victorian inventors. They had no electricity or electronic components, instead of having to rely entirely on ingenious mechanisms to achieve their goals. The technological advancements they achieved are astounding, and they were rightfully proud of their machines. All the inner workings meticulously crafted from wood, brass and steel were beautifully decorated and clearly visible. I endeavour to continue this tradition in my small way, by designing, manufacturing and selling a range of steampunk products reminiscent of those created during the golden age of Victorian engineering”.
