Man specializes in turning mundane household items into steampunk works of art (30 Photos)
Household-appliance repairman, Dmitry Tihonenko, from Belarus, took his passion for everything steampunk to an impressive level. Although he primarily uses his workshop to fix broken appliances, he has this amazing hobby going on on the side – creating steampunk masterpieces out of everyday objects.
If you walk into Dmitry’s home, you will see a collection of his steampunk creations. The kitchen has a copper-bound table, standing next to a copper oven. The microwave, fridge and even the coffee machine are also coverd in copper. In the living room, he’s created a custom copper casing for his flat screen TV, making it look like a strange, past-meets-present device straight out of a sci-fi novel.
Although he does work on custom orders, Dmitry refuses to discuss pricing, because most of his works are not for sale. But Dmitry is quite happy, even if none of his articles sell. “My friends call me a happy man,” he said. “Besides the fact that I have a lovely wife and children, I work on my favorite hobby that brings in a little bit of money. What more do I need to enjoy life?”
