Festival: 2015

I make contemporary mechanical clocks from wood. These are weight driven, pendulum regulated devices with minimal frames which reveal the working mechanism. I use locally sourced native hardwoods wherever possible, in particular ash, walnut, cherry and yew. Clock parts are produced in batches using woodworking machinery modified for the purpose. I include other materials as necessary, particularly carbon fibre, PTFE, brass and steel.
