Ukraine-based artist Valerii Danevych creates wooden clocks and watches that are properly functioning. The uniqueness of his work have made him famous in the entire world.
Valerii Danevych was born in 1968 in Kiev, Ukraine where he lives and works up to this day. He comes from a family of cabinetmakers, where he inherited his skill to work with wood. Back in high school Valery was making wooden miniatures such as a 3 cm guitar with hair strings. For a long time he was designing and manufacturing wooden structures and art objects. The more he gained experience, the more grew his desire to work with complex structures. In 2005 he started making clockworks entirely out of wood. A significant jump in his career happened in 2012, when Valery presented his works at the World Watch and Jewellery Show BASELWORLD 2012 and he has been nominated to the Horological Academy of Independent Creator.
