South Korean blogger Design Hobby creates a desktop clock using nothing but cement. It involves making molds from scratch, by cutting and taping plastic sheets. The clock is minimalist in appearance, but decorative with its two bell-like fixtures on top. It is a versatile piece that would complement both the minimalist or chic home.
The creator was inspired by the shape of a traditional twin-bell alarm clock, but because this clock is completely made of cement, the bells on top don't ring. Twin bells were originally made of thin metal that vibrates and rings; this concrete clock replicates the appearance of that, but just for show.
Because this DIY requires piecing together clockwork and cement molds, it would not be a simple project. For those up to the challenge, the clocks could make great gift ideas.
