Van Dusen Clockworks constructs one-of-a-kind functional artwork, wonderful, sculptural, whimsical clocks and lamps combining antique and vintage items carefully selected from their extensive collection of beautiful objects. Each object tells it’s own story individually, but as Van Dusen Clockworks combine these objects together they create a new story. A husband and wife team, Jon and Lisa Van Dusen both graphic designers love to source parts from antique stores, flea markets, estate sales and farm auctions. Collectors for years, they live with vintage finds throughout their home. Each piece they create is constructed of unique vintage and antique findings and the clocks are fully functional with a quartz movement. Some include hand carvings created by the Van Dusen team. All pieces are named and numbered with a custom metal plate and ship with a vintage pocket-watch hang-tag. The entire process takes 60-80 hours from designing and sourcing the objects to engineering the seamless construction.
