The nature of sheet glass doesn’t lend itself to intricate cuts, forcing simple elegant design, as each and every piece is cut by hand. Clean lines and a subtle palette seemed to suit this particular clock and several resources were referred to when finalizing colors.
Every design starts on paper, first drawn as a thumbnail sketch, then drawn full size, until a sense of balance and harmony of color and shape is reached. Several glass prototypes follow, reworking shapes or colors until it’s perfect. Patterns of the shapes are made to use as guides so each piece is consistent and fits.
