About Show more
R. Michael Wimmer began his career as a landscaper, working in the family business for 25 years and also joining the Navy—but he always wanted to make art. Wimmer fell in love with “stuff” during summers spent in Indiana with his grandmother, a garage sale fanatic. “She knew what she liked,” Wimmer laughs. “She was a sweet old woman who could talk you out of anything.” He began collecting antiques and eventually became an antiques dealer. From that, he was inspired to use the “stuff” he found to make sculptural clocks using various materials such as wood, metal, paint, and pottery.
