Time Flies: A Feather Clock from France

Issue 95 · Gothic Influence · October 22, 2013

There is something just a little bit eerie about bird feathers. Maybe it's because they're the result of molting, or that they're dead organic material. Whatever the reason, we like the haunted quality of French designers L'Atelier d'Exercices' Feather Clock in which partridge and pheasant plumes function as the hands of time.
