Acanthus Clock

Acanthus Clock. Mixed media, private collection. This amazing clock case was made in the 40's from sawdust and glue pressed into a mold. It was a burned out electric that I found in a shite store.

The original face was completely corroded so I painted the new one in watercolor, with pen and ink detail. The acanthus design on the case is one of my favorite motifs.

The clock is heavy and stands approximately 81/2 inches tall and 7 inches wide. It works now, finished in time for the Holiday show.
