Richard discovered the beauty and simplicity of copper pipe and found objects to make clocks, cd-racks and similar items. His long interest in enameled copper as an art form has added another dimension to his work.

His work is displayed at the Island Artisans Craft Galleries in Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor as well as several other galleries in Maine.

The tide clocks shown above are currently Richard's most popular clocks. The 'day' face tells the time, the 'night' face shows the phase of the tide.

There are two wall versions and one mantel versions. All versions are available in Patina and Bright finishes. The faces are enameled copper.

The tide clocks retail for $200.
