The Time Flies Clock embodies the expression that "Time flies when you're having fun." More than just producing a play on words, the designer actually intended the piece to remind its owner to enjoy himself. Jenny Walsh suggests that "If times not flying then go do something fun!"

The talented Irish woodworker chose to use the organic image of flies' wings as the hands in her timepiece. She cut the exquisite elements by hand into realistic shapes with delicate details to hint at texture. A long one indicates the hour and the shorter informs of the minute. A single fine stick ticks entirely around every 60 seconds and accents the bold blue, red, white or gray color of the Time Flies Clock. Stats for Insect-Winged Wall Clocks Trending: Older & Average
