Paveen “Beer” Chunhaswasdikul's unique, hand-hewn stoneware will be showcased at the 32nd annual Smithsonian Craft Show
As a former auto mechanic, it’d make sense that potter Paveen "Beer" Chunhaswasdikul's garage in Gadsden, Alabama, would be filled with relics from his past career. The room’s shelves are lined with metal cans, flame throwers and engines. But their metallic glint belies a surprising secret: Each object, from bolts to base, has been painstakingly fashioned from clay. And the garage, where the craftsman once tinkered with car innards, is now a ceramics studio.

At a deeper level, steampunk unsettles. It’s not just that "masculine" and "feminine" categories are often mixed or violated. It’s also that the very ideas of masculinity, femininity, and normalcy draw attention to themselves in steampunk contexts and invite people to think, hmm, maybe that’s not an absolute. With Victorian and contemporary gender ideologies so visible in their world, steampunk texts can push readers to think more carefully and more creatively about all these "rules."

Japan has a long tradition of Sherlock-influenced, copyright-avoiding manga or anime: Young Miss Holmes, a manga comic about Sherlock’s niece; Detective Hound, a canine anime series co-created by Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki; the unrelated Detective Dog Sherdock, a comic in which the sleuth is reincarnated as a dog; and the Arthur Conan Doyle-inspired boy crime-solver Detective Conan, whose latest animated adventure trounced Keanu Reeves’s 47 Ronin at the Japanese box-office. But the BBC series recently received the ultimate accolade: completely faithful (ie, free of tentacled creatures and and robots) comic-book adaptations of the episodes A Study in Pink and The Blind Banker in Young Ace magazine.
