This wall clock has a hand-painted wooden background with a black-to-blue fade reminiscent of the sky at dusk. The face and pendulum are brushed stainless steel painted with a subtle crescent moon. The pendulum swings behind a circular cutout in the background. Celestial hands are mottled blue.
This pendulum clock is 30" tall, 12" wide and 3" deep.
Leonie Lacouette manages to strike a balance between concepts and influences that otherwise might seem like polar opposites-her elegant clocks successfully reconcile the strict geometries of Minimalism with a warm, approachable palette of colored patinas on the copper and nickel that predominate her designs. Created from a basic language of circles, squares, ovals, and rectangles, the clocks are not only beautiful, but often playful as well. In one design, the otherwise hidden movement of the pendulum swings gently back and forth, revealed by a perfectly circular hole punched through the face of the piece to create a dynamic (and unexpected) game of 'hide-and-seek'.
