At our workshop at Artisans On the Hill we hand make our range of Shapel Tide Clocks
The timber in your clock is Plantation Grown Mahogany which is sourced from ecologically sustainable forests in South East Asia. This industry provides a welcome income for the locals in these regions.
The natural timber clocks feature an oil finish (I want the finish to be IN the timber, not ON the timber). This allows the timber to breathe and will require from time to time a freshen up with a good quality furniture wax or oil.
The Blue clocks are generally made from solid pine, with the Moon version using Mahogany as per the timber clocks.
Unfortunately, availability of some components, especially the hands, can be difficult so the clock you buy may look slightly different to those pictured.
Please note that timber is a natural resource and I do not stain the timber in your clock, so natural variations in timber colour and grain will occur.
Please keep your Tide Clock away from direct sunlight wherever possible to maintain the quality of the finish.
To purchase your Tide Clock, you will be taken to the Artisans On The Hill website, where you can also see many beautiful and unique products in our Gallery.
We welcome Trade Enquiries for our Tide Clocks.
My wife Christine and I (Peter) create interesting functional pieces for our Gallery and teach unique crafts in our workshops. We also feature amazing pieces from a number of world class artisans.
I hope you enjoy using your tide clock as much as I enjoyed making it for you.
