Peace Clock

Now recognised around the world as a symbol for peace, the black & white motif was designed 60 years ago as the badge of the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, CND. It can be read as a highly stylised version of Leonardo’s Vitruvian man in stick form, spelling out the letters N & D in semaphore, circumscribed by a circle. (D is formed by holding semaphore flags straight up and down the body, while N is formed by holding the flags out at either side at an angle of 45 degrees).

Colour Field Clocks

The following four wall clocks are examples of a series inspired by the Hard Edge Colour Field abstract paintings of the American artist, Ellsworth Kelly. I love his use of colour and enjoy exploring different combinations.

The top two here are striking clocks, where the hammer falls to hit the bell every hour...

While the bottom two wall clocks stay quiet...

They can also be adapted to become desk clocks by clipping them into a removable stand, shown below:
