In Time, this curvy clock made of figured cherry and rosewood, was awarded Honorable Mention at Art of the State: Pennsylvania 2014.
In Time was one of only 122 pieces selected from nearly 1,800 entries. The clock's unique design is accented by many curved elements and four small, vertically arranged drawers hidden behind a coopered door.
In it’s 47th year, Art of the State is recognized as the official, statewide juried competition for Pennsylvania artists. Presented at The State Museum of Pennsylvania, Art of the State has established a tradition of exhibiting highly creative art chosen by a distinguished panel of jurors.
