The Feather Clock by Marie-Aurore Striker-Metral for L'atelier d'exercices has a minimalist design that uses plumage to tell the time. The circular black clock uses delicate pheasant and partridge feathers as hands. The battery-operated wood clock has a glass cover and has fluid hand movement, meaning it does not make a ticking sound. Both the battery and a wall hanger come included.

The cruelty-free feather clock uses real bird plumes from farm-raised animals that were obtained with respect for the birds' well being and properly disinfected. The piece was designed to look like a "glass cover from a cabinet of curiosities."

The hanging timekeeper is ideal for animal lovers and fans of the tribal look, as it makes a contemporary and unique addition to any home.
