So, a couple of years ago, I backed a Kickstarter for a steampunk artist whose work I really admire. Dale Mathis works in metal and kinetic sculpture, and I really love his stuff. He’s local to Las Vegas and has a significant piece in the Brett Wesley Gallery.
Here’s what came in the mail about 2 weeks ago. OK, I know my video is all crappy compared to the one he has on his website, but I was so jazzed by the piece, I wanted to snap a quick video. I didn’t get the dice with mine.
Overall, the piece is really well made, fits together quite snugly, and is a beautiful piece. I’m very happy with it!
Our dining room/den is decorated in “Las Vegas,” so our bar, lighted sign, and paintings of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas sign are in there. The Dale Mathis piece might not seem like a natural fit, but with the local artist connection, I think it goes well.
