Only Time Will Tell


Today I spent the morning finishing my time piece or is it a piece in time?!?

This unique piece is an assemblage of spare parts.  Starting with the heads, the empty Mantel case and an Alarm clock that I took apart for the parts.

The front view you've seen many time as I was building this piece.





















I'm totally thrilled with the outcome and thought I would share a few pics.

Here is a view of one of the sides.  Oh' and yes I even used some power tools.  Had to drill holes for all the parts and pieces.
Covered the back with a stiff cardboard that I covered with fabric and made a fun label for the back.  Then here is the other side of the clock that I did not want to disturb, as I didn't want to loose the .50 cent mark on the side.

I will submitting this piece to Steampunk Vol. 3 and who knows maybe, just maybe it will be published.  All in all this was a fun project and I want to make more.

I love it! so original and you were able to repurpose stuff. I can't imagine the magazine wouldn't want to include it in their publication.
