Reclaimed Wood Wall Clock Art by Prudence Lawton
Time to re-imagine your walls.
In this digital age, old school clocks are not so much functional (although they DO still tell time!) as an opportunity for artistic expression. The passage of daily time juxtaposed with wood from 18th and 19th century homes from Provincetown and Truro mixed with industrial scrap metals in this technologically focused age makes for a calming, centering piece of functional art for your home.
A one of a kind clock this size can be a focal point of a room - above a mantel, a bed, or in a grand entry, or a simple accent amidst a wall of more traditional or modern artwork.
Prudence grew up in Stow, Massachusetts, and always summered on the Cape. She moved full-time to the Cape 30 years ago and has worked in and around Provincetown for the past 20 years as an electrician. Prudence has lived full time in Provincetown for the past 10 years.
Provincetown itself provides most of the material. As an electrician in town, Prudence collects wood from discards. This wood is rich in PTown history. Some clocks are made with flooring laid down in the early 1800s. Other clocks are made of driftwood from our beaches. All the wood has a connection to Provincetown, as do the metal frames, which are also cast offs found around town.
Measuring 16.5" tall including the rope handles, by 9.5" wide, by 2.5" deep, weighing approximately 2 lbs, the clockworks are made in the US and require only a single AA battery (included). Picture loop securely attached on the back for easy hanging.
