About the Artist – Christopher Perrett

StudioAfter retiring some 18 years ago I decided to make what was then only a craft hobby full time and exhibit my work publicly. I now work full time with wood and am able to draw on years of experience and appreciate the beauty and form of this natural material, I work with wood to create clock sculptures, and only use wood from sustainable sources preferring wood reclaimed from old furniture. I study the influence of time on our lives and explore the fluid movement, and natural shapes and forms found in nature and around us for my clocks.

In recognition of our digital age I fit modern quartz movements in my clocks, and I use my country’s coins in the clock faces as hour marks believing that art is international but it is equally important that the artist represents his country.
