A long time between updates…

It has been over a year, but it has been a busy one. The new Clockwork Chest is coming along slowly, but it is starting to take shape. The drawer unit has gears on three sides that are all connected and includes planetary gears, a working regulator clock and a running chain. There is a video on the Facebook page showing everything in motion. The only things left are the drawers and the base section. Then it’s on to the final finishing. I’ve been taking my time with this as it is a showcase piece.

While working on the chest, I started on a collection of smaller boxes called The Geared Collection. This is a limited run and you can see them on their page.

Some photos of the new Clockwork Chest in progress. You can see more of the build process on the Facebook page.

Broken Dreams and a new Clockwork Chest

I have finished the Box of Broken Dreams and the lid of the new Clockwork Chest. August was the month of the SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival here in South Australia, and I had two exhibitions at the Art at Auburn Gallery. My work received a lot of interest and has pushed me towards finishing the latest clockwork chest. The current plan is to get it finished so it can be seen by more people around the country.
