Hand ma oval wall clock with standing stones artwork
These hand-made plywood wall clocks all have a pyrography artwork of the neolithic standing stones of the famous Ring of Brodgar, Orkney. This ancient site receives thousands of visitors every year, and the path around the stones has been worn by the passage of tens of thousands of feet. Each hand drawn work is unique to each clock. This one looks east to the hills of Orkney East Mainland and the Loch of Harray, and the old ditch around the outside of the stone circle can be seen on the right hand side of the artwork. People like to touch these ancient stones as it puts us in touch with our neolithic ancestors, so the lichen that grows on the rock gets worn away - except at the very top of the stones where people can't reach. There it thrives, and forms what I call "Rock Beard", as it looks like the stubble us fellas get when we are too lazy to shave!
One of four in my current collection of Brodgar-themed oval clocks, I intend to make around ten in total.
This clock is a x 195mm x 145mm and is 4mm thick, has a quiet ticking quartz movement which uses one AA battery (not supplied), and is ready to hang on your wall.
