This speed racer timepiece is fabricated from a vintage cobbler’s shoe mold, A vintage one-legged driver, vintage kids roller skates, brass rods, a hand-built sail, mantle clock gears, and a clock mainspring, and a battery-powered quartz clock mechanism.

 

These collections are a combination of vintage/found items turned into whimsical timepieces that bring back nostalgia for the good old days. I hunt for vintage-antique everyday items and electronic items that were in use 1890 to 1950 that I repurposed and up-cycled to be whimsical timepieces.  Timekeeping is as old as the industrial age and it measures how we spend our days.  I will locate and study an item for months before re-purposing and adapting it to a timepiece with an electronic clock.  The whole process is challenging and enjoyable.  They create smiles for my clients which brings me joy.
