Stick Pots

Stick Pots are fun to turn on the lathe, especially since one does not have to hollow out the interior. A hole is drilled in the top and a cut flower stem or two is inserted.




The acquisition of a lathe has opened up new possibilities. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to view recent turnings.

About Andrew E. Mitchell, Architect and Clockmaker:


Mr. Mitchell is an architect who has worked on about everything. That everything includes schools, hospitals, aviation facilities, retail, interior design/tenant finish, single and multi-family residential, restaurants, police stations and banks. He has worked in every phase and aspect of project development and delivery, including design.

He understands that design does not have to stop with the four walls that enclose a space, but includes anything that may be found both within and without. Never without a pencil and pad, he is forever sketching up ideas for . . . whatever . . . whatever comes to mind. Over the years what has come most to mind has been clocks.


This tradition of crafting fine clocks for birthday, Christmas and wedding gifts for close friends and relatives and has now matured into a serious venture with an offering for the general public. It is hoped that you will find these clocks exhibit the sparkle and flair that reflects the education, training, experience and passion of a well seasoned architect, Andrew E. Mitchell.
