Under Construction

Under construction.

Sounds mechanical, doesn’t it? Brings to mind building materials, tools, and machines all coming together in an act of creation by human hands.

And this is what mechanikhan is about — creating physical items: designing, working out problems of turning raw materials into components, assembling those components into finished creations.

Whether the item is practical (such as a gate, stove, camping gear) or imaginative (think steampunk, diesel punk, industrial chic), this is the journey from process to completion.
So, don the safety goggles. Have a face shield, protective gloves, and dust mask nearby. Maybe a hard hat, too.

Under Construction.


About clayfoot2

I'm a Midwest writer, artist, tinker, and jane-of-many-trades with far too many interests. My primary genre is speculative fiction--science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, slipstream, as well as other sub- and sub-sub-genres under that wide umbrella--but I also write poetry and creative nonfiction. "Tinker" is the operative descriptor for me, although "juggler" works, too. I love working with a variety of forms and styles, so my stories range from traditional to literary to experimental. I have the boredom threshold of a three-year-old but the tenacity of a terrier when I'm on any project(s). I enjoy the challenges and adventures of the mind and of life. My husband and our dogs understand. The cat doesn't.
