String Theory

What does time look like as it unspools behind us? Is it frazzled and frayed? Or is everything wrapped up, nice and neat?

Texas-based artist Gregory Zeorlin puts forward his own theory with this thought-provoking art clock. The image on its face looks like a solid ball of twine, but reveals hints of color hidden inside as you gaze at it. The hand painted hands are camouflaged, making their red tips appear to hover over the surface. The image is printed with archival ink on acid free paper. Finished clock handmade in Texas. Clock mechanism made in the USA. Each clock is signed and dated by the artist.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

    Comments about TIME BALL CLOCK:

    It's small,but what it lacks in size it makes up in sentiment. I bought this as a gift for my friend. It was a reminder to slow down and let time unwind,not force it. For a thoughtful gift the price was just icing on the cake for me. The value of a gift is what you make it.

      These clocks are functional works of art that will make you smile every day. Zeorlin's attention to detail makes these clocks classy. They make great gifts since they are handcrafted and not something everyone already has. Buy with confidence! You will not be dissapointed.
