Welcome to Relojearte
Antique watches, modern art.
I have been settled in Washington DC since 2008 after 40 years of sharing this family work with customers all over the world. It all started in Uruguay where my father-in-law created the first of this unique pieces. The gears found in the antique watches insipired him to capture the movement and the exquisite intricacy in automobiles and other machines. I have always admired the aesthetics of muscial intruments and I combined the notion that the time - tempo - in music sets the mood of a piece, to create musical intruments with watch parts. I want my pictures to transmit these ideas as well as allow the viewers to find their own connection.
Our pieces are made individually using mostly vintage watch parts. All these pieces are one of a kind so the photos represent the designs I create. If you like to purchase a piece please email me and I can provide more information abou the pieces I currently have in stock or visit me at any of my upcoming shows listed below of the home page . Custom work is also available.
Eastern Market is far more than a market. It is a community hub for the Capitol Hill neighborhood and a cultural destination for visitors from around the world.
Right now I'm on Winter break until the weather gets a litle warmer. Usually; I set up at North Hall Plaza. Since it is an outdoor market I will post/tweet (@Relojearte) if I am setting up or you can contact me by email.
