I had intended to add a base to this clock, but after looking at is, I was taken by the simplicity of the design, and the motion and beauty of the wood. I decided to leave it as it is – I am afraid that anything else could detract.

The wood is cholla root. The base is an old rusted speaker from an automobile that was scavenged in the desert in one of the washes.

The clock measures approximately 11 inches high and wide. The works are, as always, accurate quartz movement. The wood has been hand rubbed with linseed oil, and the metal sprayed with a thin coat of enamel lacquer.
