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

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."

      It was awesome! Bought it for mom on Mother's day. As most guys, always the last minute shopper. Their delivery was right on and the gift was amazing. It's a true conversation piece.

        Not only a great conversation starter but also keeps accurate time. Perfect for that limited section of wall space that "just needs something."

                We wanted to start a clock wall in our family room. The two requirements for a clock to be add are to be unique and unusual. This clock exceeded both requirements. [...] safely tucked away in wonderfully large bubble wrap. I highly recommend this company and this product.

                    This clock is every bit as cool as it's photo. I was pleased by the weight and seemingly sturdiness of it. My biggest complaint is the holes for hanging the clock are not "keyholes". I want to make certain that when I hang it, it will be secure and flush and it seems to me that keyholes would be the best for that.

                    I am very glad that I made the purchase and can't wait to get it up!
