This commemorative edition collection which celebrates the enduring American spirit is masterfully hand carved by West Newbury, Massachusetts, sculptor Vincent Harrild in the style of famed nautical woodcarver John Haley Bellamy. Commissioned by Chelsea Clock, Harrild pays homage to Bellamy by creating original works of art that echo the highly stylized, precisely carved eagles for which the former Maine native is world renowned.
Each carving in the American Eagle Series is painstakingly crafted by Harrild from 150-year-old reclaimed eastern white pine, a large soft-wood pine native to the New England region. The artist employs many of the same master carving techniques as Bellamy to carefully reveal the rich character and subtle narrative of each design. Harrild also uses time-honored methods of hand-applied pigment patination and meticulous 23-karat-gold leafing to colorize each carving, ensuring his creations remain true to Bellamy's trademark palettes.
This American Eagle clock is #5 of a limited production of 8 and are no longer available from Chelsea Clock Company.
