This wooden wall clock is the perfect gift for anyone that loves geometric shapes, beekeeping, laser cut designs or just someone you love!

...product...
This clock is inspired by a honeycomb. The hexagonal cells are randomly placed and either filled or left empty. The side of the wood is black, resulting in beautiful depth and contrast. The clock is very abstract. Are you looking for a clock with an indication of the 12, 3, 6 and 9? Take a look at Honeycomb Clock TWO

...finishing...
The wood has been sanded. Battery (1x AA) not included. The clock produces a soft ticking sound.

...background...
You might be wondering why bees have chosen to make perfect hexagonal cells to build their hive?

There are two possible explanations for the reason that honeycomb is composed of hexagons, rather than any other shape. One, given by Jan Brożek and proved much later by Thomas Hales, is that the hexagon tiles the plane with minimal surface area. Thus, a hexagonal structure uses the least material to create a lattice of cells within a given volume.

Another, given by D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson, is that the shape simply results from the process of individual bees putting cells together: somewhat analogous to the boundary shapes created in a field of soap bubbles. In support of this, he notes that queen cells, which are constructed singly, are irregular and lumpy with no apparent attempt at efficiency.

...colour...
natural birch wood

...size...
approximately 24cm / 9,5 inch

...note...
Some assembly is necessary due to keeping the package flat to reduce shipping costs. Instructions are included.

...silence...
Do not like the soft ticking sound that a normal clock mechanism makes? Purchase the silent mechanism together with your clock!

Excellent communication regarding questions I had about the piece and with shipping. The clock style is unique and I enjoyed reading about how the artist approached the design of the clock with natural patterns in mind.Thank you!
