Szymon Klimek is a craftsman and artist who builds tiny brass miniature models. It's jaw-droppingly beautiful work made all the more amazing by the small scale of his creations.

Mr. Klimek lives in Poland and grew up in an artistic family. In 2004 he built his first brass 3-inch long locomotive. Since then he's built over 100 other miniatures, including this awesome solar-powered brass engine housed in a classy glass goblet.
