I’ve had a variety of careers from accountancy to horticulture, but am now working as a clockmaker.

It was as a result of seeing the beautiful engraving on the back plates of 17th century bracket clocks that I got interested in engraving and I decided to have a go myself. I did two short three-day courses at the Cass Institute followed by another week long course at West Dean College, all with Wayne Parrott.

Since then I’ve been studying clockmaking at West Dean and have had a further couple of days tuition with Peter Fox. My engraving has got a bit rusty, but over the course of the next two years I’ll be doing more structured training with four engravers who specialize in clock and watch work.
