|Hand Felted Wall Clock |
I hadn't seen a Hand Felted Wall Clock anywhere before and the laborious process ensures that each of the fabulous designs by OrchardFelts of Salisbury, Wiltshire, will be unique. For this clock Roz Legge needle felted an array of wild flowers onto a wet felted background before affixing the acrylic pearl hour markers and the clock mechanism. I like the tranquil feel of this this wild flower scene, but Roz has another clock listed showing a black cat silhouette that would be great for a Halloween gift or party!
The Hand Felted Wall Clock is for sale at £20 plus shipping.
|Skateboard Wall Clock |
SESHNOTSTIGMA are based in Huddersfield and make a fantastic array of items from recycled skateboards including jewellery, bottle openers and stoppers, shaving kits, pens, watches, wall art and clocks. Basically, if an item can be made from wood, I think these guys can create it by upcycled skateboards! I didn't realise that a skateboard is actually seven layers of compressed maple wood - a light material which looks absolutely stunning after it has been through the hands of James and Stacey Gomes-Sequeira. This Skateboard Wall Clock is a perfect example. It measures about 6 inches / 15cm across (smaller versions are available) and has been finished with several layers of varnish to add protection and shine.
The Skateboard Wall Clock is for sale at £35 plus shipping.

|Cork Wall Clock |
ashortwalkltd are based in Perranporth, also in Cornwall, and are a resolutely eco company specialising in sustainable products made from materials such as slate and cork. I still remember being amazed by the gorgeous glowing chestnut colour of the first recently-harvested cork trees I saw in Portugal. Making cork products is a massive industry out there - you can even buy cork umbrellas! This Cork Wall Clock beautifully shows off the natural texture of the material. The fascia is 1cm thick by 25cm across (about 10 inches) and the hands and numerals are available in combinations of blue, black, white and silver.
The Eco Cork Wall Clock is for sale at £14.95 plus shipping.

The Gold Teardrop And Blue China Plate Clock is for sale at £25 plus shipping.
So that's all my Etsy finds for September and I hope you have enjoyed discovering them as much as I did searching for them. This was a tough selection and I wish I could have also included the Wine Barrel Clock, or the Devon River China Clock, or the Fired Horse Hair Clock too! You can search 'wall clock' on Etsy to see these and many others. It seems there is no end of designs and materials to which a simple clock mechanism can be attached!
