Mosaic clocks by
Mosaics From The Ford
I love to play with ideas. I made my first clock many years ago – the ‘House Clock’ you can see below. It still hangs on my 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.
The ‘House Clock’ was my first ever clock. I had no special tools beyond a wheeled nipper, hence some of the cuts are a bit wobbly. But after ten years or more of faithful service, it still keeps good time. I made a House Clock in blue, too, but that sold many years ago.
Another clock I designed and made. I kept the design simple: no grout; little ‘art’; just a simple piece which has accompanied my wife in her office for many years.
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.
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!
