auto timing desk clockby Steven Shaver $90.00
- the story
A tribute to the great American automobile, this desk clock is made from a reclaimed engine timing gear. The perfect accessory for car enthusiasts, handymen or fans of industrial art. The clock mechanism runs on a single AA battery, and its chrome and red hands contrast nicely against the sleek, black powder-coated finish of the gear. Designer Steven Shaver finds his gears from engine shops and salvage yards near his California studio, and individually signs the back of each finished clock. Mechanism made in China; clock made in Torrance, California.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

- the maker
When Steven Shaver swung by a San Jose salvage yard to grab a sun visor for his car, he never anticipated to pick up a new life's calling in the process. A graduate of San Diego State University, with a B.A. in International Business, Shaver owes his now very successful company and obsession with "found art," to that faithful trip in 1996. Since then, Shaver's work has been featured in everything from car shows to TV auctions, with celebrity clients and motor execs racing to get a piece of the car-part action. It's obvious from the time and care Shaver puts into his creations that he's in love with what he does, breathing new life into what others would simply discard. Above all, Shaver hopes his works will make a lasting impression on recipients all over the world, while helping to preserve the planet, "one part at a time." collection
