Whisk Up A Good Time

Whisk away the hours in the kitchen with a creative clock that will feel perfectly at home between the pantry and the kitchen cabinets. Handmade in Ohio by Steve Buss and inspired by Andy Warhol and everyday found art, this kitchen pendulum clock is made out of a sterilized recycled soup can and wire whisk. The simple metal finish and design allows the imaginative use of material and form to take center stage without upstaging the rest of your kitchen. Handmade in Ohio.

Steve Buss

Artist Steve Buss uses aluminum, Plexiglas and everyday objects to create his one-of-a-kind minimalist and functional pieces. Inspired by philosophy, nature, industry, the Allman and Marx Brothers, Buss infuses his work with the ideas of levity, gravity and sometimes a bit of playfulness.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Buss had a brief stint at the NYC School of Visual Arts. After dropping out, the former photography major hitchhiked across America for a year and stayed at the Institute of Human Abilities Commune in Oakland, CA for a year before packing up and hitchhiking through Iceland, Luxembourg, Holland, (where he had a short stint with Boltini's Traveling Circus), Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Spain , North Africa, France and England.

He spent 15 years doing construction contracting before devoting himself full time to creating functional objects and sculptures.

Buss' work has been featured in galleries and museum stores across America, as well as in Canada, Singapore, Australia, Japan, the Philippines and New Zealand.

Buss presently resides in Ohio.

      This clock is so cute! I bought it for my cousin for her birthday. She's a trained chef living in a small apartment in Queens, so this was the perfect cute-but-not-too-big gift for her kitchen!

        Comments about SOUP CAN WITH WHISK PENDULUM WALL CLOCK:

        Battery was a bit difficult to insert; and the second hand needed to be repositioned for clock to work. However, it works perfectly. I try to be green and since this is from recycled products, it's perfect for me. It's also a conversation piece. I actually want to put a magnet on the back and put it on my freezer. What a conversation piece then!!!

            Clock did not work. It was hard to get the battery in, but even with two different batteries, the clock still did not work.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I emailed the help address at the bottom of the order on Dec 27. It is now January 4 and no one has responded on what I can do to get my money back or a working clock.

            Not Worth It

                  I was sold on the picture, the reviews, and the reputation of Uncommon Goods, but this item has really let me down. Folks, it's literally a very thin soup can, with very fragile aluminum clock arms, and a standard small whisk as the pendulum. It's absolutely adorable and I love the idea, but it's small size and fragileness is just not worth the cost. Think about it. The can is probably a dollar, with the other parts being around four dollars (and that's being generous). Uncommon Goods is selling this item for [$]. I'm all for spending money for quality products, but to me, this just isn't quality.

                  Everyone who sees this clock loves it. It's great fun for the kitchen. However, the clock, the battery, the hands all have to be positioned just right for it to work correctly. Once you get it working it's great.
