Clock #50 & #51



#50/100, Erosion

A few more clocks finally finished! Just got my next batch back from the welder, need to order more clocks and I'm good to go another 15 clocks. The clock below has probably been the most challenging one I've ever done, it's the heaviest too. I wonder should I tout these as possibly weapons? Hit an unsuspecting burglar on the head with one of these and burglar be gone.

#51, On the Grid

Very creative clocks, how do you come up with this stuff? would you say you find the stuff first and then think of a use, or do you have something in mind and then look for the materials?

#51 is incredible. The feel of burlap.

bob, yeah I've been collecting 'baubles' for the last two years and I have boxes of strange things. Then it is like putting a puzzle together, just finding what pieces matches each rr plate (texture,color,etc)and seeing if I can cut/shape attach whatever to the plate.
m, wow I never saw that before and now I do, especially on the side view on the larger image. good eye!

These two are exceptional. It's great that you're still going strong with this clock series.

Yes - definitely go with the weapon line of marketing. Mulitpurpose art - what could be better?

You could branch out and do some that double as other tools - maybe a toothbrush? Screwdriver? Dish scrubber? Really the possibilities are endless!!

:)

But seriously, these are wonderful - love the grid of #51, weapon not withstanding.

I love the look of the top one. It reminds me of the desert. Makes me want to go spend a few days in Arizona or thereabouts.

I love that they come from the earth. Not a weapon. Would hate to sully the beauty of any of these with yuck.
