Kinetic sculpture in glass

Bandhu Scott Dunham makes kinetic sculptures out of glass, including the steam engines that power some of them. He discusses how they are made in this podcast. For videos of these sculptures in action, you can view the collection in his gallery or watch some home videos.

Oh man, I wish I could view QT at work. Forwarded to myself at home with much anticipation.

These look to be very cool, but I wish the videos showed the elements close up. I can't quite see how the energy of the boiling liquid is translated into motion. Are the revolute joints glass-on-glass? How does that hold up over time?
