Arts & Crafts Time

Drawing on the Arts and Crafts revival of Asheville, North Carolina, Desmond Suarez crafted this clock from nature's finest materials—hand-finished Appalachian cherry and richly patinated copper. The ginkgo motif is emblematic of the Arts and Crafts movement, infusing the piece with distinctive tradition. The fine craftsmanship extends to unexpected design details, like the hardwood backer board that snaps in place magnetically to conceal the clock's movement. With its layers of organic inspiration and handcrafted dimensions, this clock will grace any wall, bookshelf, desk, or bedside table (may be hung or displayed freestanding). Handmade in Asheville, North Carolina.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Patina Ginkgo Box Clock:

      I originally ordered this to replace an old clock in a hall bathroom. But it's so gorgeous, I've hung it in the living room, and I'm ordering another one. It's beautifully made, and I've fallen in love with it.
