    I was just sent this link and after searching the forums here I didn't find it posted, so I am!

    An artist named Clint Neufeld has been making engines out of ceramics...

    I know a lot of people will dislike this, but I thought it was hilarious, and I am blown away by skill and quality of these pieces.

    A ceramic Stromburg 97 would look fine on my desk!

    Wow!
    I would like a nailhead and a flathead. I even know where I would put them ( since I've wanted to get the real think for display in the house anyway ).

    No cost on them....... I know I can't afford them, or the shipping but still.
     
  7. so I'm assuming by the detail those are original pieces that just ceramic coated and baked like the caddy flathead exh manifolds for instance? I cant see vintage furniture holding the weight though....cool nonetheless.
     
  8. My first thought was why? :confused: HRP

    Click the link. Then click the links that you find there.

    He cleans them up and makes plaster castings from actual engines that get pulled from rigs. He makes his molds from those.
    He fills some of the area that would be massive heavy ceramic with foam to create voids that keep the weight down some also.

    Probably the same reason why we hang old hubcaps and license plates on our garage walls.

    You've got to start her off small, maybe with a carburetor or a manifold... :D

    kind of goofy to paint them that way. they would be much better painted like a motor is supposed to be.

    Cool...Flowers are too femmy, it needs something tougher, or pinstripes.

    So was your second thought, "Wow, my first thought was pretty lame."?

    Haha – painted like an engine? Something "tougher"? Let me tell you it takes a man to be comfortable liking flowers and toile. The sissys need skulls and spider webs.
