Black Tie Verdigris Pendulum Clock

Black Tie Pendulum Clock with Verdigris Copper · 18x8x2 inches

Small yet elegant, this clock has a black-on-black painted wooden background and a face and pendulum of hand-colored copper. (Clock is 12x8 inches, 5½-inch round pendulum swings below.)

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'.
