The Octo’clock

The Octo’clock was the inspiration of a great friend and client who came to me to design and make this excellent piece. I have to confess that when the idea first emerged I was a little sceptical but that very quickly changed once I started designing. This has been hand carved in India by Ian Agrell and gilded with three layers of gold before being burnished up to the beautiful finish seen.

This should be seen as an example of what can be done and could be re-created in bronze, gold or indeed just polished wood.


It is made of Indian Gummer and gilded/ebonised.
