Former Graphic Designer Left His Job To Create Handmade Spider Sculptures From Antique Watches

A person can be really good at something and be very successful in what he does but still be in search of his lifelong mission. It seems that Hungarian artist Peter Szucsy has found it and it’s not something too different from what he previously did.

Peter has worked as an illustrator and lead designer for a game development company where he was also the art director. He decided to stop creating his imaginary fantastic creatures in virtual reality and have brought them to the physical world. Now he laid aside the vector graphics and turned to metal to create extraordinary and incredibly detailed spiders from antique watches.

Peter has more than 300 watches but still needs more because it’s very hard to get something that matches the color and the style of the material, so it really needs a detailed organization of the working process. Most of his works are based on the materials he finds in the flea market since it’s very hard to think of a concept then find all the necessary elements for turning them into reality.

Creating each of these unique spiders is really not an easy job, it requires lots of time and effort to bring each piece together and make something this incredible. But no matter how hard it is, Peter is in love with his handmade creations and does not plan to go back to his computer.
