Mosaic clocks by
Mosaics From The Ford
I love to play with ideas. I made my first clocks many years ago – the ‘House Clocks’ you can see below. The red and yellow house clock still hangs on our bathroom wall, gently telling me how late I am…
I’ll be adding more clocks, all for sale, to this page, but for now, here are some examples of clocks I’ve made.
These ‘House Clocks‘ were my first ever clocks. I had no special tools beyond a wheeled nipper, hence some of the cuts are a bit wobbly. I sold the blue and the purple versions a long time ago, but the red house still keeps good time in my bathroom, reminding me just how late I am. Is that life as art? Indicative price: £30.
The centrepiece image of the bird originated from a photo I took of a pair of Jackdaws sat on a fence. The stayed there while I took the photo and so I reimagined what a Jackdaw might wear to a party and used that as the image for the clock. A flight of fancy? Maybe… but we all need to let our imaginations fly sometimes. Size: 25cm. Indicative price: £75
Another clock I designed and made. I kept the design simple: no grout; little ‘art’; just a simple art deco-style piece which has accompanied my wife in her office for many years. Indicative price: £35
The Sunrise Clock is made from sheets of glass and a painted wooden tree. The silent mechanism moves the hands gently around the face. With the changing light of the day – or day to day – the reflections from the irridescent surfaces play and interact with the light, creating changing perspectives. Indicative price: £95
Another mosaic clock from eons ago, this piece was actually framed and hung on the wall. I made it in the shape of a mantel clock and it provided a bright, cheery image whilst also keeping time. Beauty and functionality!
