Welcome to Relojearte
Antique watches, modern and timeless art.
I have been settled in Washington DC since 2008 after 40 years of sharing this family work with customers all over the world. It all started in Uruguay where my father-in-law created the first of this unique pieces. The gears found in the antique watches insipired him to capture the movement and the exquisite intricacy in automobiles and other machines. I have always admired the aesthetics of muscial intruments and I combined the notion that the time - tempo - in music sets the mood of a piece, to create musical instruments with watch parts. I want my pictures to transmit these ideas as well as allow the viewers to find their own connection.
Our pieces are made individually using mostly vintage watch parts. All these pieces are one of a kind so the photos represent the designs I create. If you like to purchase a piece please email me and I can provide more information about the pieces I currently have in stock or visit me at any of my upcoming shows listed below of the home page . Custom work is also available.
Upcoming Art shows & Festivals 2024 soon...
I'm incredibly grateful for your support this year. I had the opportunity to participate in some amazing shows, meet both new and returning customers, and create a number of stunning commissions that I truly enjoyed working on. I hope you've cherished these unique pieces as much as I did in making them.
It's now time for me to step back, spend quality time with my family, celebrate the holidays, and prepare for an exciting 2024.
I'm already brimming with ideas for new designs and can't wait to share them with you in 2024. Thank you again for your continued support. I'm truly honored to be a part of your artistic journey. As soon as I have confirmed my show schedule for next year, I'll update this page with the details.
