This live edge piece of Black Walnut has a unique story behind it. Time has taken it’s toll. The tree became subject to the destruction of the carpenter ants who took advantage of it weakening limbs in its last years of life. Thankfully this wood could be savaged, and its wonderful story could be captured in this wonderful functional work of art.
Please note: the wood has been heat treated to assure nothing living remains in the wood.
Our handmade clocks are built in Elora, Ontario, Canada.
Each clock is built using sustainably sourced wood. Our wood is
salvaged from urban tree removal. We mill and kiln dry the wood ensuring the
wood is dry and stable and that nothing is living in the wood.
Each piece is meticulously designed. Each of our pieces is is a result of the artist perspective that considers the
shape of the wood and the flow of the wood grain. We focus on highlighting the uniqueness of the woods and paying tribute to the beauty of nature's creations.
We take great care and pride in our pieces.
We produce very limited quantities as our focus is on producing the most unique
pieces of functional art.
Sizing of our clocks are measured in inches which represents the outside diameter of the clock ring or the longest distancein the case of free shaped wood clocks.
