Our wooden folk art Journeys the Thing Wall Clock with a pendulum is handmade & painted in our Maryland, USA studio. This clock is 18 inches tall including the roof peak and pendulum, 9.5 inches wide and about 2 inches deep. The clock face is an archival print image clock face of my Tortoise & Hare painting. This is my motto. It isn’t where you are rushing to- it is the beauty and adventure found in the steps along the way. Homer the Greek Poet first penned this notion and it still rings true today.The clock pendulum has a small image of a turtle or sunshine tucked into a bottle cap mounted on the metal pendulum. (or you may request either). It weighs about 4 lbs. The clock runs on 2 AA batteries one for the clock, the second runs the pendulum.
My husband John cuts, sands and joins the wood pieces to form the house shaped clock body with a gable roof out in the wood working barn. Next, I drill a center hole and paint the clock body to compliment the image that will be adhered in the center. Once the image is adhered in place I hand brush in the details that will visually tie the clock face print to the background.I paint directly on the wood- so the lovely grain shows. Finally, I sign the unfinished back of each clock. Takes 2 AA batteries to run clock and pendulum. The design for these clocks is based in folk art traditions. Our big clocks are a delightful addition to any decor.
