You remember Berd Vay’e, right? We wrote about them before, with the use of resins (and the like) along with reclaimed watch parts to create interesting objects with ties to the world of horology. Well, they’re back with a new creation, the Berd Vay’e Hallucination.
Why call it a hallucination? Well, rather than the sculpture taking the shape of the object being represented (and then filled with gears), here, we’ve got a solid block. Inside that block, that’s where the magic happens. The 1,000 to 1,500 gears, cogs, and other parts are arranged in a way to form the shape – in this case, a skull – inside the block.
For this new creation, 999 pieces will be created. If you want to pick one up, make sure you’ve got room on your shelf for a 9.5″ cube, and have $6,900 in the bank account to cover your new showpiece. And, I’m guessing, a few more bucks to come up with clever lighting for the piece. berdvaye.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
