40 x 30 Blues clock


Our Price: £135.00
Description

40cm x 30cm clock, handcrafted using fusion glass sheets which come in many colours and designs.

For this clock we used three shades of blue glass, one being iridised for the checked design and a white glass, with an inner stripe of dichroic glass, to frame where the clock movement is fitted.  We hand-cut the glass sheets into the many small pieces needed to put this clock design together which is set onto a plain glass sheet the size of the finished clock as the backing.  Fused glass items have to contain two layers of glass to get the smooth sides and the rounded corners.  The glass was then fired in our kiln to form the base for the clock.

After the fusing we drilled the glass so that we could fix the clock movement.  We then added a silver coloured chapter ring, and ornate clock hands.

As glass is quite heavy, we include 4 stand off posts, which should be fitted to your wall, two for the bottom of the clock and two for the top so that the clock will slide into the fittings.  Although the clock movement has a metal hanger we strongly recommend the use of the stand off posts so that no undue weight is taken by the clock movement which could shorten its working life.

We design our larger clocks to try to include a mix of glass styles, sometimes dichroic glass is used so that in differing lighting conditions this glass will appear to change colour, iridised glass gives a metallic look, opalescent glass will maintain its colour whatever the lighting conditions, even in strong sunlight.

If you like the design of this clock but would prefer it in a different colour combination please contact us by e-mail to sales@danielshandcrafted.co.uk with you colour choice and we can prepare you a diagram to give an impression of the finished clock plus a quotation.
