Eight Man Pendulum Grandfather Clock
Terri Bradt and Terry Clark are developing Kinetico’s newest division, producing a new design by Gordon Bradt, the Eight Man Pendulum Clock. This 6’7” Grandfather Clock is highly polished in the base metals of copper and brass, and finished in clear lacquer, as is our desk top models.
Each model is signed by Gordon Bradt and numbered. Unlike the limited edition Grandfathers, where the man climbed up the pole, this design incorporates a pendulum swinging in the column below the clock, with a man cranking the pendulum, and another man at the bottom of the pendulum. See our webpage
Grandfather Clock Restoration
A very special hands-on restoration of Gordon Bradt’s original prototype of his limited edition chrome Grandfather Clock Series is being done by Gordon Bradt himself. This clock was built exclusively by Gordon Bradt in 1992 to be developed into the 24 clocks built by his Kinetico Studios. Now, in 2010 here is what Gordon has to say about his clock and his restoration.
“This prototype model stood in my Eureka Springs home for some time and then went into Kinetico storage and was literally forgotten until the summer of 2010, when daughter Terri asked me if I wanted to restore it. So for about two months this fall, I cleaned it up, built and replaced some parts and retrofitted the motor to the style used in the series of 24, bringing it to very smooth running order. This is a one of a kind, original piece, totally hand built by me and slightly different from the Series models. It is the only one that ever used the middle Rocker Arm as a functioning detent.”
Gordon Bradt and Kinetico Studios plan to auction this one of a kind clock on Ebay, and we will release details of this auction when it is ready. For more information about the clock and the auction, please contact Kinetico Studios. See our web page Grandfather Clocks for more details about the Grandfather Series.

Gordon Bradt Retrospective Exhibit

Eureka Springs, Arkansas was the setting for our retrospective exhibit in May, 2008, at the historic 1886 Crescent Hotel. For 4 days we celebrated Kinetico Studio’s 35th year of incorporation, and Gordon Bradt’s 84th birthday with a wonderful exhibit of all of his creations, pieces that have been saved in our individual family collections.

Lost Palms Cottage
Gordon & Collette Bradt were married for 50 years in 2000 when they bought a beach cottage on the Gulf of Mexico Coast, just west of Gulf Shores, Alabama on the Fort Morgan Peninsula. Since then they have vacationed there every chance they got. Now, in 2010, the cottage has been completely renovated, and can be rented from Gordon and Collette on a weekly or monthly basis.
