Industrial designer Eric Frietas has created the ultimate collection of beautifully hand-crafted wall clocks. Although some of his designs resemble small living creatures, there is not one single piece that seems to be out of place. 

Although the clocks are not for sale yet, check out the gallery to see more elegant, edgy and steampunk-inspired wall clocks.

Implications - Digital clocks have been competing with analog clocks for market share since their inception, and designers of classic timepieces are fighting back by creating avant-garde clocks that double as wall art. These modern analog clocks are inspired by concurrent themes such as the environment, the DIY movement and the rise of the steampunk and geek subcultures.
