PROJECTS PAST & PRESENT

Below are a small selection of the various projects I have undertaken & the stories which surrounds them.

REPLICA HARRISON CLOCK

This is a handmade replica of the exceptionally accurate and beautiful clock that John and James Harrison completed in 1726. With all the features of the original clocks, this replica is authentic in design and construction.

DANIEL DELANDER BAROMETER

Notable clockmaker Daniel Delander's original barometer was the only one of this design and it is sadly now lost. This replica is a commission for a client but an additional one is available to order.

GRASSHOPPER ESCAPEMENT

This is a replica of the escapement within a Harrison Clock, originally designed to eliminate friction from the mechanism so that no lubrication was required.
