Back Home to the Future Show October 28, 2010 10:34
Our friends Bruce and Melanie are teaming up with Jeff Mach to create a new Steampunk Design Expo.
ModVic’s ‘Back Home To The Future’ Exposition is an exhibition of some of the finest and most talented artists, builders, craftspeople and innovative companies in the world who offer Modern Victorian Functional Appliances, Victorian and Industrial Decor, Steampunk Art, Infused Technology, Invention and Design for your period or newer home.
It’s a must for 'Old House' Homeowners, Designers, Home Restorers and Steampunk Enthusiasts. Also for others who want to accessorize newer homes or smaller abodes where adding a Victorian or Industrial 'character' and design is desired.

Giving color to the story behind our creations requires a love of strange objects, mostly gleaned from flea markets, Goodwill stores, or from the attics and basements of family and friends. I keep my eyes open for strange and fantastic objects, especially if they cost less than $2.99. Sometimes you encounter things you love, and sometimes you find things that haunt your sleep - like the lamp base made with 4 furry taxidermied feet of an unknown animal. I still might have to give that one as a gift to some lucky friend.

Sometimes it is good to make a big mess.
Stay very busy and keep your workspace full of ideas. Sometimes if you let them all live in close proximity with one another, they will get cosy while you are gone and something new will be born in your absence.
