The moment may be temporary, but the memory is forever is a sentiment that we should all remember in every moment we have. Physical clocks can be a remember of that.
Clocks have become my passion project. Thinking beyond time and space each one is a functional piece of art that evokes an emotion or memory of a place and time. Everything is designed around that idea and hopefully points to something in each of us that is creative and fun.
This green dotted pattern is reminiscent of malachite, a green flowing patterned gemstone recreated for this clock. Having a more masculine vibe it is solidly structured to be both functional and beautiful.
Beginning with wooden or cardboard forms, my clocks are made with disparate pieces and are assembled to be the host for the layers upon layers of colorful polymer clay. Taking many hours of work, each piece of clay is created from single blocks of color, combined, cut, stamped, manipulated and assembled into patterns. Small pieces are individually formed and gilded or strung across the surfaces of the clay to build up a design.
Nothing starts with a fully formed pattern but rather takes its own path as it is being built. Did I say that it takes HOURS of work? Yes, but to me it is also hours of fulfillment to carry the work thru the process to arrive at a beautiful and fun piece of art.
The moment is adorned with dots and swirling pattern accented by gold braids and links on a birdhouse with my signature bluebird which is ALWAYS present on my clocks. I look at these as birdhouses as a reminder of the bluebird of happiness!
The clock face is battery run, with a pull tab to start it. The clock can be removed from its home in the house time adjusted with the pull pin and replaced.
Each clock is securely assembled and cured to be sturdy for light handling….BUT THESE ARE NOT FOR SMALL CHILDREN! Use care when handling because tiny pieces can be broken off and cannot be replaced.
These are one of a kind pieces of art! As such they are each signed, dated and copyrighted.
The moment is approx 9" high and 5" across it's widest part.
