Metallic Evolution Sail Desk Clock
For the sailor or the design lover, this stylized desk clock fits the bill. We cut two steel sails, give them a sanded finish to a bright silver coloring, then weld them to a sturdy base. The sails are flared to allow a clock movement to be inserted between them. Four small holes in the clock face act as time markings. The sails stand approximately 12'' tall. The clock movement is AA battery operated (battery not included). This item looks great front and back so suitable for a desk.
11.5"H x 9"W x 3"D
About Metallic Evolution: Whew, John and Heather have been busy! We are a husband and wife team who are the sole designers, and, with the help of one assistant, the makers of this extensive body of work. Who knew when John gave Heather a welder for a birthday present that it would evolve into all this. After 20 years, we are still enjoying the process of bringing a new design to life in steel. We make everything at our studio on the family farm in southwest Ontario. Our backgrounds in custom wood cabinets and costume design have served us well in developing the design and practical skills needed to create in this medium. Both of us are “tool junkies” and have kitted out our workshop with a wide variety of metal and woodworking equipment. This has allowed us to continue to expand the scope and style of work we do. [...] Ultimately, our goal is to design and produce beautiful objects to enhance daily life. We hope you enjoy what we made for you!
Metal art is a broad description that includes our extensive collection of steel mirrors, clocks, ornaments, and metal wall sculpture pieces. While designs are produced in small production batches, we still individually hand cut, sand, weld, and bend each piece so no two designs are ever alike. Our collections are made in either a brightly sanded steel, suitable for indoor use or naturally rusted finish for no-maintenance year-around outdoors.
