There’s this famous street graffiti artist who makes his graffiti out of ceramic tiles. It makes his work quite distinctive and its often photographed and recorded. We haven’t seen any yet, though there is some around London.
We were inspired by his work, this artist called Invader, and decided to emulate his style in a mundane application – clocks.
First thing was to come up with some designs.
Next we get some tiles. This was more challenging than we anticipated. Tiles are designed to be bulk bought by the 100, not by the dozen. Regardless, we now have a lot of tiles.
Next, we stuck the tiles to boards (we had to buy a hack saw to cut some wood) and drilled a hole in them (we forgot to buy a drill).
Once we got them all the tiles stuck down, then it was time to attach the hands to the clock mechanism.
Before the hands and all looking whole.
And it’s final home on the mantle!
We’re keen for more crafty projects like this.
