Sentenced to spare parts, needles of old Jean Delmas clocks are outside the scope and work together to give birth to the surprising light and timeless sculptures that adorn the House of this antique.
Pendulum movements, Jean Delmas, antique dealer specialized in watchmaking, knows them by heart, and it’s a professional that he diagnoses the irreparable “ticking”. Here, in his usual, Jean will carefully assemble the parts of the mechanism of the clock, but this time, it will be to create a lamp, tribute to watchmaking.
Subject : an old type mechanism Brocot from a classic clock in black marble, Napoleon III style, dating from the early 1900s.
he light sculpture is exposed on a console ‘Hastings’ black iron.
You, too, BECOME THE MASTER WATCHMAKER of your decoration. Remove old workings to make WORKS of ART
-Watch spare parts
-2 pieces of identical wood for the base
-1 stick of brazing, screws, jigsaw, drill, screwdriver, torch
-1 small LED Garland
-Of the glue
The steps to follow :
2) The Assembly: organize the body of the sculpture in fitting and/or pasting parts judiciously chosen, trying to create an impression of movement. Springs, rods, rods and “wheel of time” will form the work.
3) The Soldering: for fine parts, balancing on the body of the work, like brazing. After having scoured the area to be welded, melt, with a blowtorch, a wand of brazing on both parts to merge.
4) The Light Base: on one of the pieces of wood, attach wheels, flat iron… then make a hole for the LEDS of the Garland. On the second, saw a location for the power supply of the Garland. Screw the two laths, and secure the work.
