Eric Freitas Discusses His Avant-Garde Custom Clock Creations

A Blog To Watch

August 4, 2014, I received an email from a client named Mark Jungers, who was interested in commissioning me to create a large clockwork installation. I had been making mechanical clocks for about a decade, but nothing of the size and complexity that he was requesting. Jungers is a wine aficionado, and this mechanical sculpture was to be the centerpiece for a wine cellar that he was constructing in his Milwaukee home. I’d always wanted to work on a more architectural scale, so when he found me online, and emailed me with his proposal, I jumped at the opportunity. After thorough planning, concept sketches, and a down payment, I began building “The Jungers Commission.”
