Quaint is a wall clock which was inspired by the clock face of an old clock tower. The brass of the clock’s dial and outer periphery are exposed by polishing.
Orb is a wall clock which draws inspiration from old, tarnished brass instruments such as those used during early voyages and astronomical observations.
Thin engravings on the clock face form a dial on the coloured surface, exposing the brass below.
Both clocks emphasize the natural qualities of their materials, using the attractive contrast between the brass and coloured finish to enhance the visibility of the clock face. The distinctive texture is achieved by a process of brass casting that uses traditional colouring techniques originating from Takaoka, Toyama. The rich texture is intended to stand up to walls that have a strong material quality, such as exposed concrete or brick.
