When I think of natural wood grain I think of the beautiful high-backed cedar bench my mom, dad, aunts and uncles gifted my grandparents for Christmas when I was about ten years old. Red in color, Amish-built, and nothing short of majestic. One year during college I came home for the holidays and inexplicably found it painted the most god-awful green-gray you’ve ever seen. Because that’s what my grandmother does, defaces natural woods like that. It broke my heart.
I think that’s why I’m drawn to the Minimal Wooden Clock, the only thing it’s trying to accomplish is showing off its natural beauty. Crafted by hand from reclaimed Limousin Douglas timber, each clock is chopped to size, sanded, and then screenprinted with the simple, minimal ‘Arrow 12′.
