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.
This intriguing antique repurposed clock is totally unique and one of a kind. The base is the inner workings of an antique clock from Germany which survived a fire decades ago. The clock face is from World War II and it utilizes copper wiring, brass, solder, and a quartz clock mechanism that utilizes a AA battery included.
