Yes another clock. I guess by now you can see I make mostly clocks. I’m not really crazy about clocks but it gives me an avenue for making a functional decorative item for the home. I enjoy making different designs. I’ve had another business reproducing sculptures for artist for the last 25 years and after you have to make 500 sculptures of the same design you get to the point where you just want to make one of a kinds.

This is a curly tiger maple clock in an Arts & Crafts style that I made last year. I borrowed some of the elements from an old oak grandfather clock. Thanks for looking!
