A Moment in Time can be counted by every dot on this creative artwork.
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.
Beginning with wooden or cardboard forms, disparate pieces 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.
A Moment in Time is a little dotty I think. Once I started with the dots, it just had to be finished! Which took WAY more time than I expected. That is part of the challenge of making these clock though - I never know where it will lead. No flowery pattern here, but still just darn cute with the dot adorned pattern and texture. Graced with a bluebird which is ALWAYS present on my clocks. I look at these as birdhouses for 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. Some faces have a small dab of stick-um that helps to secure the face in place and does not harm the clock but should be 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 each is signed, dated and copyrighted on the bottom.
A Moment in time is approx 5" high and 3 3/4" across its widest part.
