The frame of this clock is made with solid capiz oyster shell, compressed into shape. The artist seals the shells, leaving the natural color of the capiz as the base, pearl color of the clock face. Intricately designed blue roses are hand-painted and purposefully placed along the outer rim. Bold roman numberals are evenly spaced to complement the strong floral design. The combination provides a strong vintage appeal.
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.
