Time for a unique wall piece?
American designer recycles old materials to create new clocks.
These timepieces are made by Shannybeebo, a designer in the United States who creates and decorates clocks of all sizes with unique designs that are eye catching, colourful, and made from recycled materials.
One of her most beautiful and intricate pieces, 'Just Roll With It' is made from small colourful pieces of magazine; cut, hand-rolled, and glued onto a vinyl record to create a vibrant colour collage on the face of the timepiece.
She makes a variety of styles of this magazine piece, by rolling, tubing, and shaping differently to create different designs, such as her Sunburst clock or Rainbow clock. She also creates glitter vinyl record clocks that draw their glitzy inspiration from the Great Gatsby, and rustic wood clocks made from small pieces of treated oak.
Shannybeebo says of her designs: 'These distinctive clocks make for a compelling piece of functional art when hung on a focal wall in your home. Best of all, the manufacture of these clocks, made from vinyl records, oak, and magazine paper that was heading for the bin, means less waste sent to the landfill.'
Shannybeebo creates a number of beautiful pieces, but if there is something you have in mind in regards to colour, size or design, she can make something for custom order. All her designs are available online at her Etsy shop, where you can contact her to discuss anything regarding her pieces, or ideas for your very own unique design.
