We are a bit of vagabonds and travellers inside. For us nothing can be compared with seeing, touching, smelling and tasting new places, experiencing them and exploring roles which the place kindly offers. Through the things we create we want to share several most significant cities of the USA and Europe which have not only rich history but important personal meaning.
The Seattle area was previously inhabited by Native Americans for at least 4,000 years before the first permanent European settlers. Arthur A. Denny and his group of travelers, subsequently known as the Denny Party, arrived from Illinois via Portland, Oregon, on the schooner Exact at Alki Point on November 13, 1851. The settlement was moved to the eastern shore of Elliott Bay and named "Seattle" in 1852, after Chief Si'ahl of the local Duwamish and Suquamish tribes.
The hands motion is complemented by the movement of 3 gears each of which is an AA battery operated. The mirror on the background adds some volume to the clock and amplifies the movement effect, transforming the clock into a kinetic installation.
Upon request the clock can be personalized with a text engraving, which will neatly supplement the look of the clock face.
