When Steven Shaver swung by a San Jose salvage yard to grab a sun visor for his car, he never anticipated to pick up a new life's calling in the process. A graduate of San Diego State University, with a B.A. in International Business, Shaver owes his now very successful company and obsession with "found art," to that faithful trip in 1996. Since then, Shaver's work has been featured in everything from car shows to TV auctions, with celebrity clients and motor execs racing to get a piece of the car-part action. It's obvious from the time and care Shaver puts into his creations that he's in love with what he does, breathing new life into what others would simply discard. Above all, Shaver hopes his works will make a lasting impression on recipients all over the world, while helping to preserve the planet, "one part at a time."
It's Go Time!
Whether you run your life in the fast lane or you prefer a more leisurely pace along life's back roads, here's a clock that'll keep your schedule humming like a well-oiled machine.
It's the creation of artist Steven Shaver, who finds his creative fuel in automotive salvage yards, where each sculptural piece of metal seems to have its own story to tell. This particular cog used to be critical in regulating the timing of an engine, and now it will do the same for your home, office or workshop. The gears come primarily from American cars - you can even look up the part number to discover its origin – and the visual detailing of the gear will vary from clock to clock. Handmade in California.
Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
