Pebble by BLOTT WORKS
Pebble clock is a beautiful, curvy, characterful, hand-engineered, decorative signature piece, capable of redefining any room.
It also tells the time.
And provides a very engaging way of timing any event of an hour’s length or under; such as the time it takes a pie to cook, or a meeting to finish.
It is when you activate this timer and witness the chain make its deliciously slow journey around the clock, gradulally opening the antenae wide as it prepares to chime, that you begin to really understand the magic of this unique sculptured machine.
From the beginning there was an intention to create an aesthetic based on solid and robust detailing and by 'over-engineering' throughout. And to use the beauty of the raw materials and simple components to give a sense of integrity and enduring agelessness. The shapes, the curvature, the lines, and the sense of volume, all help to give heart and soul to the functional elements and imbue it with that certain something.
Setting the heavy chain into the surface of the body reinforces the impression of it being like a large precious pebble, worn smooth over millennia. When the timer function is activated, the chain moves glacier-like as if bedding itself into the surface and becoming part of it.
Concrete was chosen as the material for the base because of its honesty, versatility and subtle beauty. And because it quietly roots the clock to the ground. We think it sets off the aluminium, steel and brass beautifully.
A quote from Dan on Pebble clock:
“I'm very proud of what we've achieved with Pebble - I just love the way it’s bursting with beauty and character. There are so many layers to it - so much uncluttered depth - it seems to resonate with a myriad of different stories. It looks like some sort of cherished artefact, or 'being', from another time or far-flung civilisation.”
