Cinder Garden Urban-Steam


I became inspired by the Steampunk art and clothing at Burning Man in recent years. I am particularly smitten with the Obtainium Works crew based in my hometown of Vallejo. They are an amazing group of artists and makers who use obtainium (used stuff) to make art cars, artwork and functional contraptions.

I truly believe in recycling, so I vend gently-used & vintage clothing, reworked and hand-made garments made from upcycled home linens, upholstery fabric samples, used clothing and found objects. I don’t use any new fabrics, so using Obtainium makes my clothing truly unique and affordably chic.

  • My URBAN-STEAM clothing and accessories are functional, vintage with an industrial edge for working folks… intended for everyday, work-time and play-time. I use upcycled men’s wear with heavy fabrics,  made into Utility Bloomers, Utility Trousers and Utility Vests. My style can be called Steampunk Chimney Sweep, Oliver Twist, Street Urchin and Ragamuffin, all with functional utility pockets and D-rings. 
  • My FULL-STEAM accessories include Steampunk Utila-Bustles, Top Hats, Bowlers, Fascinators and Goggles to amp up your look for Burning Man, Cosplay and Dress-up.

Accessories: I love the challenge of making found objects and hardware store finds into Steam accessories.
