The Clock

Here’s part of a piece I’m putting in a show next month. It’s a triptych – this is the middle section. It’s not finished yet, but it’s fun to share WIPs.

This is the second grandfather clock I’ve made for this piece (the first was a prototype). Well, it’s really the fifth, if I count the sketchbook. I discovered last summer that if I work on the layers in my sketchbook before working in the diorama, I end up with a record of the piece, which will stay around after the diorama goes to live somewhere else.

Here’s the first rough sketch I did:

I’m interested in the idea of theater, the physical space and and what happens there.


I’ve finished this piece and am adding a few more pics below.

There – that’s better.
