Kunstlerhaus Bethanien exhibition in Berlin

I was invited to exhibit two pieces in the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Celebrating 40 year anniversary with the opening of ‘The Mechanical Corps. On the Trail of Jules Verne’. I went to the launch night, it was very well attended and we had a brilliant evening. The gallery also has studio space for artist to work in.

Steampunk Wild Wild West Bullet Garters.

I found this cool old tan leather holster, just the right size for a lipstick, a mobile phone and a purse. I put it together with a bullet garter belt, one for each leg and some bullet conchos.

Below are a pair of  Steampunk western style bullet garter belts I made.  Adorned with lace, bullet casings and bullet conchos.



I have an exhibit at the MAD (Mechanical Art & Design) Museum

Professor Maelstromme is exhibiting exquisite items at this new Museum which opens to the public in March, located in Stratford-upon-Avon, the hometown of Shakespeare, UK

The MAD museum is a wonderful and exciting collection of machines incorporating gears, chains, pulleys and whirligig paraphernalia. The exhibits fall into three areas:

  • Kinetic Art = art in motion
  • Automata = interesting mechanical contraptions
  • Steampunk = modern gizmos with a Victorian twist

Whitby Goth Weekend 2012

I have booked Whitby Goth weekend on 26th to 30th April 2012 and will have a stall selling there.  It is a gothic music festival in the gorgeous little fishing town of Whitby, North Yorkshire with perhaps more focus on socialising, enjoying the beautiful village and shopping for gothic clothes and items. The goths invade for two brilliant weekends a year, April and October and enjoy the Abbey ruins pictured below. Whitby is a place that is part of the storyline in the book Dracula by Bram Stoker published year 1897.


Whitby Abbey ruins and beautiful coast view.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Themed Leather Swiss Waist.

In the eye of the Maelstromme

I am creating a new range of Victorian style Swiss waists / belts in both leather and fabrics.  This is the first one I have made in leather; themed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for Steamcon III, Seattle, with the classic Kraken attacking a ship image and part of chapter 18 of Jules Verne’s book etched onto the leather belt.

Professor Maelstromme is mentioned by GEEKDAD

I am very excited GEEKDAD mentioned my name and I really do exist!

Worth checking out is a new book create your own Steampunk Gear, Gadgets and Gizmos written by Thomas Willeford of Brute Force Studios – it  had a great review on Wired.com by GEEKDAD.   GEEKDAD brings to our attention Professor Maelstromme as one of the friends and charachters who inspired Thomas in writing his book and creating his art in Dramatis Personae, Appendix B .   GEEKDAD said ” Each project chapter has a fun little one-page fictional story, and you can tell Thomas has had some fun with many of his fictional characters — Professor Isadora Maelstromme, ”   Hello! 🙂
