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.
