About the Company
DeGregorio Clockworks is dedicated to designing and manufacturing dynamic mechanical artwork inspired by engineering and science.
Our primary goal is to share the beauty of mechanical design with others. Fascinating mechanisms are hidden in everyday items all around us (vehicles, appliances, etc). These often overlooked designs are the results of decades of iterations, forming products that demonstrate true engineering ingenuity. By creating artwork that showcases mechanical design, we hope to inspire creativity and inventiveness.
Hello. My name is Joe DeGregorio. That is me in the picture, with my wife, Kira!
I founded the company, DeGregorio Clockworks, in 2016 after several years of increasing interest and aptitude for building wooden clocks and dynamic artwork.
My background is in Mechanical Engineering, and my first job out of school was designing mechanical transmissions for large machinery. This existing affinity for gears/mechanisms expanded greatly after discovering the work of Clayton Boyer's Celestial Calendar in a Popular Mechanics article in 2012. Since then, I have been obsessed with designing functioning artwork that emphasizes mechanical design and engineering.
