SteamyTech’s series of decorative laser cut DIY kits are part of the growing world of Steampunk. The DIY kits are made in the USA and include laser cut movable wooden gears so that you can build your own Planetary Gear Coaster, Imaginary Gear Heart Pendant, and Wooden Gear Desk Toy.
SteamyTech brings the wide world of Steampunk to The Grommet. Inspired by the fantastical technologies in the works of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, this Sci Fi sub-genre is set against the smokestacks of the Industrial Revolution. In this world, anything is possible using steam engines, clockwork gears, and just the faintest hint of magic.
Greg and Lora Price, SteamyTech founders, first discovered Steampunk at a 2012 convention. They witnessed Steampunk’s role as major inspiration to the Maker Movement, spurring the creation of beautiful handmade items. But they wondered why most of the crafts had immovable gears.
The husband-wife team’s decorative designs are made in the USA with laser-cut pieces that incorporate functional gears that you can move. Their signature work is the “Aether Catcher,” a wondrous Steampunk device that simulates capturing the very essence of reality. Eight color-changing LED’s shine brightly through Steampunk inspired gears and designs, casting a luminous display in a dark room.
SteamyTech integrates whimsical designs and a hint of wonder into every finished piece and DIY kit they create. From start to finish, SteamyTech kits are imaginative, fun manifestations of the fantastical world of Steampunk.
