Time for Natural

This clock will bring some of nature's most beautiful textures right to your desk. The clock features a solid cherry hardwood backing, inlayed with brushed aluminum accents to mark the time. The wavy or straight black metal hands perch on a completely unique sea stone, washed smooth by years of tumbling among sand and waves along the coast of New Hampshire.

For each stone "harvested" another rough quarry stone is "planted" in its place. In the same spirit, for each tree used for the backplates, ten times the number of trees are planted to conserve the future of our forests. On a flat surface the clock can stand on its own, or you can hang it on a wall with the included nail. Cherry will darken naturally over time. Handmade in New Hampshire. Sold individually.

Arra David and Anne Johnson

Arra David and Anne Johnson are longtime New England rockhounds. Their love for Mother Nature's artwork in stone and hardwood inspires them to handcraft functional creations that bring the outdoors in. They craft each piece with attention to detail, quality, and respect for nature.

Working with stone calls for custom fixtures and techniques. Arra is an engineer and inventor, and he says it's part of his "normal care and feeding" to put him in the workshop and let him make new products and tools.

Anne is an artist with a keen eye for balance and harmony. She blends the endless varieties of nature's materials into pieces that decorate homes and will keep generations connected to their environment.

To keep our beaches and forests as they are, Anne and Arra "plant" a new quarry stone in the water to replace each one gathered, and they plant ten times the number of trees harvested for their work. collection
