Before & After Gallery
Hello, my name is Andrew Fitzgerald and I am an artist and designer from Hertfordshire, England. I produce various items but concentrate on upcycling clocks and bespoke funiture created from retro music based paraphenalia.
Since childhood, I have been intrigued with investigating how mechanical objects work, dismantling things and putting them back together. This combined with a passion for drawing and creating art and gifts meant that I began to experiment with incorporating everyday objects into my art.
The care that went into creating many of the items that I have rescued (record players, radiograms, even the vinyl records themselves) seemed particularly poignant to me, given the increasingly 'virtual' manner in which music is consumed these days. These pieces evoke a nostalgia for the days when your music was a much more visible and tangible part of your life, sitting in the corner of your bedroom or living room, your music collection visible to all.
The clocks can be made in any colours you desire and I would love to hear from you if you have a colour in mind to go with any particular colour scheme or you wish to buy a gift for someone in their favourite colours simply contact me via the contact page or using my email or phone number and we can discuss the details. I can also make the clock face from your favorite musician or recording artists records as I have a library of thousands and many contacts from which I can source any vinyl records.
