With some products, the designer might have liked to reveal to you some evidence of its manufacturing, and this is -- in a sense -- what you get with these Sanding Disc Clocks. Contrary to what you might expect, the traces of the fabrication process that can be found on the chronographs is telling of the object's first purpose, and one that it no longer serves.

The qoowl studio has taken these used workshop implements and transformed them into quirky decorative wall clocks. You can tell that they were once installed on craftsmen's machines, and they still bear the sawdust of their final woodworking projects. The rings of worn texture subtly reference the artisan and his work. The Sanding Disc Clocks are complete with finely cut timber hour and minute hands to pull beauty from the practical apparatus.
