Each clock from KLOCKWERKS has a fascinating quirkiness and whimsical appeal. From clocks with springs on the outside to clocks emerging from shoes, all of the handmade steampunk clocks from KLOCKWERKS have a fun character that is uniquely their own.

These handmade clocks are available for sale in all shapes and sizes, from small mantle clocks to life-size standing clocks.

Handmade steampunk clocks and custom timepieces

KLOCKWERKS’ creator, Roger Wood, makes every custom clock by hand in his workshop in Nova Scotia, where he has collected thousands of pieces of antique bric-a-brac to create his one-of-a-kind timepieces.

“These are no ordinary clocks. Toronto artist Roger Wood imbues each piece with an alluring whimsical quality that will fill a room with charm and intrigue. No two clocks are alike and each one features Mr. Wood’s own unique signature: a feather.”

Roger Wood creates with time in mind. Yet even though the clock can be a consistent element of his work, it’s often secondary to its creation.

Whether it’s a curious timepiece or a unique assemblage, Wood thrives on working with an immeasurable array of findings from the tarnished and forgotten to the odd or intriquing. He is a devoted collector of usual and unusual objects with one thing in common, a history.

The source of his inspiration lies in the hundreds of curiously labelled drawers and boxes brimming with artifacts of all description that line the shelves of his Annapolis Valley studio. Wood orchestrates an arrangement from his myriad of treasures until the precise moment that it feels right. Then he quickly glues them all down so they can’t escape.
