When I recently stumbled upon the creative crafts of a study buddy of mine I was instantly inspired to do a quick post on another great obsession of mine – wall clocks. Just like with scatter cushions (my primary obsession), wall clocks are excellent feature items. I have a whole Pinterest board solely dedicated to wall clocks – I specially like unusual, funky and clever wall clock designs. I thought I’d share a handful of awesome wall clocks by local designers with you…
Amy McCallum, who studied Interior Design with me, has branded her crafted lovelies under the Amy Lauren Creations banner. She creates gorgeous rustic treasures from salvaged and reclaimed items. Her two upcycled wall clocks immediately grabbed my attention – they are made out of an old fan grid cover and a discarded bicycle wheel. The result is altogether unique and funky – I love its industrial feel!
I love these quirky and colourful pop cow clocks by Smink!
This little elegant beauty, designed by Woltemade, is called the “Free Range Clock” – it’s made from maple ply and has a leather and brass stud surround. Isn’t it just beautiful?!
Found these awesome vintage map clocks on Bombshell Belle‘s website – their quite big too… about 60cm in diameter. I especially love the one on the right with the rustic rope detail – it’s got a very definite nautical feel.
The Camo Clock by Capetonian design duo, jessejames (Jesse Ede and James Bisset) is made from durable OSB wood. OSB (Oriented strand board) uses the wood from trees that grow quickly and sustainably, so this little wall clock is environmentally conscious as well. And I love that even the clock hands are made from OBS! You can purchase this online via 5rooms.com
