For 65 years the viewfinder has been delighting people of all ages, and this wonderfully nostalgic clock is sure to bring back fond memories of childhood that reach across generations. Handmade from a vintage viewfinder and complete with the famous viewfinder reel, this piece of art is handmade by Minnesota artist Debra Dresler, who aims to tell a story and give 'new life to old spirits' through her functional art pieces. Perfect for anyone who is young at heart, the viewfinder clock will add personality and historic charm to any home. Since these clocks are made from actual vintage viewfinders, condition and model may vary slightly.

Made in

From her Minnesota studio and in her frequent travels, artist Debra Dresler scrounges for a collection of "interesting little things" at flea markets, antique stores and junk shops to create her imaginative series of functional art pieces.

"My view of art comes from the beauty and lasting memories of everyday things," Debra says. "Some say life is in the details, I say life and art are in the everyday sacred. I am a believer in the 'ordinary as art'."

Debra uses a variety of materials in her work, from found objects, vintage typewriter keys, children's books, old cameras and discarded game pieces. The goals of her work is to bring "new life to old spirits," to tell a story and to help people make a personal connection to the past.

Comments about Vintage Viewfinder Clock:

This was supposed to be a gift for an antique and clock collector. I was very disappointed. View Masters are rather common antiques, and the wood and other materials appeared very cheap; therefore, I thought the cost was far too high

  • Personal
