Change is in the Air

Eleven tiny cast sterling silver figures are dancing, reaching for and catching coins that appear to be floating overhead. The 5" hand-hammered clock face has brass dots to indicate numbers. The second hand is a continuous sweep with no ticking motion. The quartz clock movement runs on an included AA battery and is silent. The clock is fabricated from copper, brass, sterling silver, and coins and is oxidized with a sulfur solution to create a dark patina. After polishing the silver figures, the clock is waxed to produce an permanent finish.
