for this artist and
For over 20 years, Leonie has been creating beautiful
handmade clocks. She feels that making clocks is the perfect marriage
of art and function. It is important to her to create something practical,
while being inherently aesthetic.
Leonie’s career began after art school. She needed a clock for
her new studio and, employing techniques learned in material science classes,
she created a prototype. Pleased with the result, she decided to try additional
designs using a combination of copper, steel and painted hardboard. The
original designs were a hit and sold quickly leading Leonie to a successful
career as a craftsperson.
Leonie makes a wide variety of clocks that are modern in design yet
warm and pleasing by combining sleek lines with the organic shape and
color of copper often coupled with the brightness of polished steel.
