Why we love the Clock Wall Decor Multicolor Face (m1505) . . .

The frame of this clock is made with solid capiz oyster shell, compressed into shape.The artist calls attention to the uniqueness of each shell in the center with a high-gloss finish. Bold, roman numerals stand in contrast to the shell within the clock face. Color blocks adorn the outer rim of the clock in muted tones. The roman numerals combined with the color palette are strongly influenced from Tuscan design.

Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. The clock is created by compressing capiz shell together and forming it into shape. The final result is a light-weight, plate that feels similar to plastic. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz may come through as tans and browns underneath the hand-painted surface.

Our products are made using materials that are sustainably harvested, use non-toxic dyes, and water-based finishes. Additionally, we view ourselves as partners with our artists. We continuously exchange ideas on how to improve production, product quality, and the health and well-being of the makers that work to create the products we sell. We visit our artisan groups on a regular basis to ensure that our core mission is being followed.

The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same items, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
