I’ve had a hankering to make clocks for a while. I have a very specific type of clock in mind, and I’m not yet ready to attempt it, but in the meantime I thought I’d have a bash at a simple one.
It really is a simple construction, made with two boards, some paper, and a clock movement. The front board is covered with a page from an old atlas, and the back board is covered with pink wove paper.
You might wonder why I covered the two boards separately… well, I needed to use two to get the thickness I wanted, but it turned out that the page from the atlas wasn’t quite big enough to wrap completely around the double thickness of board. So I ended up sandwiching the two boards together after they’d been covered, but I do think it works well.
Simple, but very effective. I hope this finds a good home at The New Vintage fair next month – I’d love to put it on Etsy, but I’m afraid that the arms will get bent or something if I packaged it up for posting!
