Gallery Talk with Richard Ketchen, Clock & Scientific Instrument Conservator
THURSDAY, APRIL 27 | RECEPTION 5PM, GALLERY TALK 6PM
Richard Ketchen, of Carlisle, Massachusetts, will lead a gallery walk on Fasoldt clocks and the Holtzapffel ornamental turning lathe and rose engine featured in this sale. A leading clock and scientific instrument conservator, Richard is uniquely qualified to speak on these diverse subjects. Ketchen has restored a large and diverse collection of Fasoldt timekeepers and has made one from scratch to better understand the genius of the original maker. As an avocation, Richard acquired a Holtzapffel ornamental turning lathe and an entire cabinet full of original components, and he now spends his spare time reinventing the mysteries of ornamental turning. Join us for what will no doubt be a very interesting evening.
