About The Artist

I have been making clocks for more than 35 years. My current line of wall and desktop clocks incorporates painted and natural woods, lots of patinated copper, stainless steel and other metals. I love combining geometric shapes in exciting new ways. I grew up in NYC, one of the most vibrant cities, and now live amid the richness of the forest and the mountains of the mid Hudson Valley. All of that informs what I do. I'm just as likely to be inspired by a piece of wood's natural grain as by the shape of a modern lamp. Inspiration is everywhere when you're open to it.

Tell us how your work is made.
I create a clock design and we bring in parts and raw materials from all over the country. Here at the studio lots of sanding, painting, patination and assembling takes place. All the finished clocks are hung and tested before being wrapped and shipped all over the planet. All the clocks are guaranteed to function.
