This live edge shadow box clock is titled “Random Heat” because of the copper backdrop. The copper was heat treated at random intervals, in random places across the field, and at random temperatures to produce stunning colors in the metal. Each temperature and amount of time under the heat produces different shades of oranges, yellows, and purples.
It is framed with white oak that has been treated with a Shou Sugi ban finish, a Japanese technique of charring the wood to protect it from the elements. This treatment results in a deep black finish. The live edge wood that houses the clock is Spalted Silver Leaf Maple.
The pendulum swings separately from the clock body, adding some whimsical motion to the piece.
