About the Work

Repurposed spoons and a clock face emerge from a pink tin in a steam punk inspired piece that is a fully functioning clock. Wood is a self-taught artist who lives and works in his large Klockwerks studio in Hamilton, Ontario. An admitted yard sale and flea market junkie, Wood collects "odd, forlorn, mysterious, lonesome, intriguing, usually weathered and tarnished things - things with a history." These pieces with history often incorporate words and numbers, remnants of another time: company names on old tins, serial numbers that point to patents or parts lost to time. Wood has been making eccentric, eclectic art deco and steam punk inspired clocks for many years which, he has said, "seems a natural activity for someone obsessed with the passage of time." The whimsical nature of many works reflects his belief in the importance of play and childlike wonder in a world that is too often serious and too seemingly chaotic.
