"Cast No.1" - Original
This timepiece is the original from which “Cast No.1” was made. Unlike it’s pewter offspring, this piece was not cast, but hand-machined from brass. It was cut out with a handheld jewelers saw, and then a rotary tool with a wide array of burrs ground the metal into it’s final sculpted form. A selenious acid patina was applied to darken and age the surface, and also add depth.
The hands for this clock were also hand-machined from brass, and are accompanied by blades of weathered paper, enhanced with subtle acrylic washes.
Dimensions: 12” x 20” x 2 1/2” deep
