Bringing together his design and mechanical skills, Andy Smith makes unique clocks. With forms reminiscent of fish and of finches, and boasting moving 'mouths' and 'beaks,' Andy calls them Cloquefinches. He started making clocks ten years ago, the designs straight out of his head, with influences from Czechoslovakian animation, Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Each clock is of wood and aluminium, handmade right down to the top hat bushes cut on the lathe in the garage.

You should hear the perpetual ticking in our house.... on and on and on and on and on it goes; but I do love it!
