9:20am – My Mind is Blown.

This studio space is like a dream – walls painted in a serene gray with easily over 200 grandfather clocks in Nathan & Jennifer Bower’s 2000 square foot space. It’s like stepping back into time – so to speak! Soft tick-tocks of all the working clocks and occasional chimes and bells of various tones and rings. All charming and totally draws a visitor in, inviting curiosity. And boy, am I! Interview time…

6:49PM - About Ready to Call It For Today.

Winding down for the day, but man, it was the best. Nate showed me the intricacies of hand-cutting gears – no CNC machine here – all his gears are handmade. Such detailed work which is part mystical, part old-world – but this guy, who actually is good friends with our engraver, Dave – is a lot like Dave in that he brings along the wisdom and craft of the past, linking arms with the new and now. It’s a killer combo!
