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. Cheerful blocks of vibrant, sponge-painted colors circle the clock face and encase a clean, white number.
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.
