If you’ve ever been fascinated by the inner workings of a mechanical watch, you’ll love Sue Beatrice’s beautiful steampunk sculptures. Created for her art company All Natural Arts, these imaginative pieces repurpose old watches, found objects, and natural materials into beautiful jewelry and other works of art. While nature and sci-fi fantasy are the primary inspirations for her pieces, all of Beatrice’s artwork is made with a strong focus towards environmental sustainability.
An accomplished sculptor, Beatrice isn’t just limited to reworking old watch parts. Before Beatrice launched All Natural Arts, she was best known for her commercial sculpting at high-profile companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros. Beatrice also enjoys using a variety of materials such as sand, wax, and plaster. The New York Botanical Gardens and the Food Network have even displayed her amazing pumpkin carving skills.
Beatrice’s upcycled steampunk art is just as impressive as her previous work. Most of these small-scale sculptures are created within the frame of a pocket watch, but she also designs standalone pieces such as the Steampunk Fairy. She describes the artistic process for these creations on her website: “recycled, upcycled, and repurposed objects are combined with natural elements into unique, earth-friendly and artistic items sensitive to the limits of our natural resources.” She creates pieces on commission and will ship anywhere in the world.
