These modern hourglasses use elegant design elements to update a useful old tool. The hourglass is often a forgotten tool that serves functionally as much as it does aesthetically.

The 'Colorplay Hourglasses' are contemporary designs with the basic functionality of conventional hourglasses. The set comes in three different models ranging in size from three minutes to 15 minute cycles. Coming in three different colors -- these pieces aren't purely for functional purposes, they also serve as fantastically designed pieces that can be places throughout the house.

These modern hourglasses have also often been used for therapeutic purposes -- providing a perfect ambient sound to avoid distraction in the case of meditation. The pieces can also be used for exercising or work activities -- being the perfect centerpiece for any desk space.
