Talented Polish engineer Szymon Klimek combines art and engineering in his works, creating models of the early 20th century cars, trains, steam engines and fancy carriages. But the interesting thing is that any product easily fits a regular wine glass. To the beautiful miniature models made of very thin sheets of copper and steel, the author gives the desired shape and fastens together with glue. Meanwhile, the creation can take up to two months of hard work. According to Szymon Klimek, his work is at the intersection of decorative, engineering, and jewelry. Also, Szymon Klimek prefers to keep his miniatures in wine glasses.

‘When I first had the idea I was surprised when it appeared possible,’ he said. ‘I try to give them as much detail as possible’ – says Klimek

They take two months to make and finished designs, which are no more than 8cm long, are sealed in a wine glass for protection.
