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.

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.

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.

          I bought this as a gift for Mother's day. My mother loved it, and so did all of her friends. It adds a nice feel to a new or old kitchen. Plus, it is being recycled which helps out the planet. This is a great gift for mothers, grandmothers, teachers, or just about anyone you can think of!

                the wisk goes back and forth ! the previous reviewer was right.... it does appear like something very simple, that we could have made down in our garage workshop. But, I wouldn't ever do it... and I wanted a funny, conversation starter clock. One that would make people smile ! It is soooo cute. I still smile at it!

                  When I first opened the box I thought, "I could've made this myself," as I chuckled. But I honestly never would've taken the time to make it. (Pun intended) The man who made it is creative and smart to have thought of it and put it out there for those of us who appreciate whimsy. I'm extremely glad I purchased it. I see it every day in my kitchen and smile every time.
