This clock is a blend of classic Arts & Crafts style and contemporary design. We create the clock out of steel, sanding it to a bright brushed silver coloring then bend the sides to form the free-standing form. The clock face is heated to develop a deep blue/gray coloring for contrast. The battery operated clock mechanism uses an AA battery (battery not included). We sand the edges of the clock hands as an added handcrafted finishing touch. Consider this clock as a striking design addition for the office or living room. As each one is individually made, there will be slight variations to each design.
