About

door knob clocks

i like clocks, and i also like stuff. things most people may call junk. i can find art in the unconventional. i like using items in ways for which they were not originally intended.

when designing a clock, i take into consideration many things. size, color, texture, shape, spatial relationships and time periods, are just a few. affixing the door knobs, and attaching the mechanisms, along with making sure the pendulum swings properly, can sometimes be a challenge depending on several issues. one of those issues being, out of what material the plate was originally constructed.

i admire functional art and good design, from architecture to silverware. i believe that things can have a purpose and still look good. by creating clocks out of antique door hardware, a lot of my ideas and beliefs about design, have come together. i love taking dusty, tarnished, bent and otherwise forgotten pieces of architectural history, and turning them into beautiful, one of a kind, works of art.

Thank you for visiting Half Past Clocks. All items used in creating these hand made, one of a kind clocks, are true vintage items. I try to leave them in the condition that they come to me. I believe each layer of paint, chip, dent, or scratch contributes to each clock's unique character.

FYI'S
here are some fyi's that might help you in regard to hanging, and enjoying your new clock.
---when setting the time, be sure to use the dial on the back of the mechanism. using your finger to push the hands, may cause them to come loose.
---should the hour hand come loose, thus no longer keeping correct time, and hanging freely at number 6, there is an easy fix. remove the clock from the wall, position your thumbs, one on each side of the hour hand, and gently, but firmly push down.
---before hanging your new clock, put the nail in the wall at an angle. this will ensure the pendulum swings properly.
---should you have trouble keeping the pendulum swinging, adjust the angle of the nail, tapping it upward.
---if the pendulum stops swinging after a period of time, try changing the battery.
