What lies beneath are ten ticking clocks. All are identical and all made from found objects. Tomorrow night, give or take any unforeseen problems, I will have one for sale via an ebay auction. I will post it on this blog.
I can preface this by saying there are actually 11 of these. The 11th clock is an AP (artist proof) and is slightly different in that the top of the clock is enclosed whereas the others are not. This clock I am giving to Tod because he found the long piece that I cut into little squares for these clocks. Because he has purchased a handful of RR Clocks this year. Because he will be offering the other 9 on his (mine too kind of) new website the end of next week.
The point of the auction is mostly to allow blog fans to have first dibs. The point is also to allow people a chance to buy affordable contemporary functional art. I have made these clocks identical (as close as possible given the medium) which also keeps the price down as the level of creativity stays even instead of making a completely new piece each and every time.
Having said that. Today I've got batteries in the clocks to give them a test run. Today I will print out the certificates of authenticity/how to take care of your clocks info. I will get my little ebay thing prepped and ready for blast off. I hope you can make it to the grand opening of something I feel is unique, affordable and FUN! This is a new endeavor for me both creatively and market wise, I trust I have your patience and support as I test it out here. (meaning if I mess up the ebay thing, if I don't do everything perfect no one is going to call me an idiot)
