Safe return








After an exhibition in New York, all of my clocks have been safely transported back home to my studio. Hearing the house filled with ticks again brings a satisfied smile to my face. In addition, since there’s a piece on every wall, I have a license to make fun of anyone who asks what the time is (always good for a cheap laugh).

This collection of timepieces is now on sale in the shop of this very site.

Thank you & Enjoy!

Jungers Commission

This is a video that I shot of “The Jungers Commission” after it’s final install in the client’s beautiful wine cellar. If you’re interested in more information about this clock, there was an article on ABLOG TO WATCH that tells the whole story of it’s creation. I hope to some day make more work on this scale.

Show in the Hamptons





















In two weeks, I’ll be packing up the largest collection of my work to-date, and heading out to Southampton for the “Odd Beauty” show. I feel that 14 hours in a car is a small price to pay if I can ensure all of my clocks arrive safely:) Hope to see you at the opening!

New Mechanical Finished











This piece is 100% hand made, including hand-machined gears, and hand-threaded screws. It’s powered by a weight, which is wound once a week. It also features a maintaining-spring, which means that it has a reserve of power that keeps it ticking even during winding. I’ve been testing this one for accuracy over the last month, and it has been within two seconds a week.

This clock will be on it’s way to a show in the Hamptons soon. I’ll post details on that later. If you’re interested in this piece, or are curious about commissioning a piece and wait times, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you, and enjoy!

New work










Two new one-of-a-kind clocks are now available in the shop! They will be available for a short time, and then if unsold, they will be sent to the Hamptons for a group show.












Here are a couple of quartz commissions finished earlier this year. If you’re interested in commissioning a piece of your own email me through the contact page of this site, and I can give you pricing and waiting list information.









After two months of grinding, cutting, molding, pouring molten metal, and finishing work, I’ve finally completed my latest limited edition offering. It is now available for purchase in the shop, titled “Horizon”.

It’s been quite some time since my last series, and I’m very happy with this one! The original roman numerals and back-plate were cut from thick 1/4 inch brass, which gave me lots of material to make the parts more three-dimensional. Also, rather than cast the rim and backplate in one piece I decided to make separate molds for each part. This allowed me to sandwich the printed & painted dial in between the rim pieces and face. The result is a construction, and look that matches the original clock.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you!


Here’s a quick recap of the work created in 2016. I’d like to thank every one who kept me busy with commissions throughout the year. I enjoyed working on every single piece, and I hope that it showed in the finished product.











There’s a lot I’d like to tackle in 2017. Here’s what you can expect first:

For quite awhile now, I’ve been refining the design for my next mechanical piece. It’s now been tweaked, re-done, and adjusted through over 30 different versions. I’m finally happy (really excited actually) with the way it looks, and will start cutting in January. It will measure between four and five feet tall. I will post the final rendering of it soon.

I’m also going to be creating a new pewter cast quartz piece. I’m currently working on the original for this one, and I’m taking my time, and combing over every detail. It will be a horizontal piece measuring 24 inches wide. Expect it to be on sale in January.

New Offering

For the clock-shop of Eric Freitas, 2016 was a year packed with a diverse range of projects, most of which were commissions. I’ve just finished a new quartz clock, and it’s the first to hit the market from my online shop this year! Visit the shop listing to give this one a new home.






Thank you!







The latest commission. Hand carved brass with kitikata rice paper. I like that this one is less dominant vertically or horizontally. I’m also happy with the feel of that thin piece of metal wrapping around the lower left of the dial.


NOTE: I’m in the process of finishing up my first non-commission piece in a long time. It will appear in the shop soon. If you’re on the mailing list (through the contact page of this site) you’ll be notified via email.


Thank you!
