Automaton Bite 1682 Vegvisir Wall Clock
This big wall clock Automaton Bite 1682 Vegvisir is made of several layers of wood, woodstained and painted high quality acrylic paint and a piece of acrylic mirror. The front elements of the clock are decorated with detailed and intricate engraving. Stainless steel elements and copper coated screws are used in the construction of this clock model.
While making the design of a new clock we were inspired by a Vegvísir (Icelandic 'sign post') is an Icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. It is said that "if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known".
The hands motion is complemented by the movement of 4 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.
