The excitement over the pendulum clock attracted the attention of designers resulting in a proliferation of clock forms. Notably, the long case clock (aka grandfather clock) was created to house the pendulum and works. The English clockmaker William Clement, inventor of the anchor escapement, is credited developing this form in 1670. It was also at this time that clock cases began to be made of wood and clock faces to employ enamel.
