The brief for this piece was to create a futuristic Steampunk city in miniature, so I created Metropolis. 
It started out as an old Rosewood sewing box, so I restored the original inaly and fashioned the city skyline from lots of found parts and even added a couple of raised metro lines weaving in and out of the buildings. 

The clock uses 6 of the large Z566M Nixie tubes, and the front of the clock features a Dekatron tube to form the central letter 'O' of Metropolis, the rest of the name is individually inlaid into the original rosewood. 

A lovely project to make, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out :)
