Time Flies: A Feather Clock from France

Alexa Hotz 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.           

Above: The Feather Clock is $224 from Totokaelo Art-Object.

Above: The clock is made from black-painted wood with a rounded glass cover, 12 inches in diameter and 2 inches thick.

Above: The feathers are harvested from farm-raised partridges and pheasants.

Above: The back of the clock has an attached wall hanger and battery compartment (batteries included). The clock has a very quiet movement: watch the video at L’Atelier d’Exercices.
