Maker's statement

The centre consists of a back plate in crushed coal overlaid with a stainless steel pit wheel. The movement is contained in a polished brass dome which reflects the wheel spokes.

Proposed scale model for a coal mining company's foyer. The clock includes coal as a material for use in the real clock. The coal would be crushed and re-formed using molds. Scale 1:50
