Monkey nut collector


Size:     6” x 19”

The shy little monkey who collects coconuts, acorns. and red nuts and keeps them hidden.   Fiberglass monkey, glass beads, copper and brass wire, red nuts,  antique clock face, and a modern quartz cock movement.


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.
