"I came to clock making after a long career as a professional artist. My other passion apart from painting has been model and precision engineering, therefore the move to clockmaking seemed natural to me, since I view my clocks as works of art. 

 

My workshop is equipped extensively with Swiss and English machine tools alongside the many specialist tools required for gear cutting and manufacture of precision components. Many specialist tools I make myself, and every component from a simple screw to a finger is made in my workshop."
