Tick Tock

An interactive work of functional art, this kinetic clock by Seth & Kali Keaveny works entirely by gravity—and a little push from you. Handmade from Baltic birch plywood and cork, this clean lined design creates a modern focal point when standing still, and a hypnotic pendulum effect when pushed. Choose from tabletop or wall-hung models. Handmade in Atlanta, Georgia.

For Seth and Kali, that something is applying simple, good design principles to reinterpret everyday items such as lamps, picture frames, and clocks. “Being conscious that I can touch people’s lives in some small way, even with a lamp or valet, can bring tears to my eyes,” says Seth. “To inspire, to influence, to share, and most importantly, to put a smile on someone’s face—that’s what it is all about!”

I love this clock!!! It is so unique! The interactivity is ingenious and the design is fresh and modern! I just can't get over how simple, yet amazingly innovative it is. I get so many compliments over this and it is definitely an awesome conversation piece. The workmanship is high quality and you can see the detail that went into it. I will definitely be purchasing more items from this artist/company!! I hope Uncommon Goods showcases more of their items!

Returned the item. The description on the site didn't give enough detail about the item. It requires batteries to run the hands of the clock, yet the pendulum only moves if you move it by hand and even then the pendulum only stays in motion for a minute.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Pendulum Clock:

    I added 1.5v pendulum mechanism from old quartz pendulum clock (Source: Thrift store). I added neodymium magnet in clock base, and coil with board in the base. Only AA battery I could not put into base. works very nice, swinging about 20 degrees in each direction. I would recommend to manufacturer to do the same and create new model, with bigger base (to hold AA battery and entire swinging mechanism), maybe entire bigger clock would be better idea, not sure

    Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Pendulum Clock:

    This is an addition to my professional office and am looking forward to the positive comments. It is a very appealing, eye-catching clock that is such a unique design and balanced beautifully. The only thing that would make it beyond perfect would be if the pendulum would swing independently on its own power. That would be cool!

        Temporary Pendulum

        By 

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Pendulum Clock:

        Very cool design. Unfortunately, the mechanism does not swing on its own. Instead, it swings for a few seconds if you lift it to one side. It requires one AA battery, not two as the website indicates. I kept looking for the compartment for the second battery. I thought maybe that's what propelled the pendulum.

        Clock hands flimsy and arrived slightly bent, but not enough to affect function. Wonderful piece to watch. Mesmerizing.

        The only thing that could have been better would be if the pendulum swung on its own continuously. Other than than we liked it.

        NOT a pendulum clock

        Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Pendulum Clock:

        Your information needs to specify that it has no motor, so it's a pendulum for a maximum of 2 minutes.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Pendulum Clock:

        I absolutely love this clock!! It was totally as advertised. The craftsmanship is obviously top notch and the quality is above reproach. The swinging action is so cool. It's quite the attention grabber, everyone who has seen it comments and asks where I got it!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Super smooth process. Product arrived on time and in perfect condition.
