Diameter: 8"


The Process:
Each of these clocks is a work of love. First, I spend days driving around to bicycle shops, sweet-talking mechanics and trying to beat the scrap metal guy, to find interesting pieces. Then I hit a huge circuit of thrift stores looking for just the right backings to use.

After I've collected a box of stuff, I spend another couple days soaking, cleaning and polishing every piece before it goes to my workbench. Recently I've also started painting and oxidizing some parts to get some different effects.

Then the fun of visualizing begins. I try lots of different combinations until the right parts meet each other. Next comes the drilling, filing, bolting and wrenching.

Finally, I select just the right clock hands to add the finishing touch....and then a battery to bring it to life.
