Bonsai Gear Clock

This new futuristic-looking Bonsai Gear Clock is perhaps more fascinating than watching tiny leaves sprout on a real bonsai tree. In spite of their steely looks, the clock's gears are in fact made from plastic and its base is a wood box. If you can't keep a bonsai plant alive for long, maybe this strange clock is perfect for you.

Implications - Plants and other greenery add a calming, warm, naturalistic touch to any interior space; however, not all consumers have the time to maintain a plant, or simply lack a green thumb. Thus, alternatives like this Bonsai Gear Clock meet these consumers halfway, while simultaneously providing an ironic, machine-meets-nature touch to any home space.
