Not Your Ordinary Grandfather
A slice of the traditional, this modern take on the classic grandfather clock makes a much wittier and cooler statement than its older counterpart (and in half the space). The Grandfather Slice Clock has a deep walnut satin finish, metal hands and a Plexiglass face, for an elegant, contemporary look. Designed by Rob Price. Made in China.

Rob Price is an industrial designer and the creative director of Thwart Design, a New York-based design collective. Price founded Thwart Design in 2004 to harness the creative strength of designers whose work he respects, and the organization's objective is simply to create design for art's sake. He graduated from Pratt Institute's industrial design program in 2002 and has since designed a wide range of creative "classic with a twist" products, including the Grandfather Clock.
Price has said this about his clock, which has quickly gained a cult following: "The grandfather clock is iconic on a global level and a part of our shared visual lexicon. With my Grandfather Clock, I wanted to play with how little I could provide visually and still evoke the image of an entire clock in minds and offer function."
