Maker's statement

This is only the second clockcase I have made and although I have found it a very exciting project I feel much more could have been done to marry the mechanism and the case, rather than the mechanism plonked into a box and if I get an opportunity to work with Mr Good again it will be this aspect that we will concentrate on.
