With the invention of analog and then digital clocks, it was only a matter of time before they were combined. Clock Clock by Humans is a mix of the old and new to create something totally different.
The knitting clocks from Siren Elise Wilhelmsen are a way to bring the past right into the present. They are clocks, available in either Grandfather Clock version or the 365 wall-mounted version, that knit a scarf throughout the year.
* The Grandfather Knitting Clock and the 365 Knitting Clock can be purchased through Siren Elise Wilhemlsen’s website

Cuckoo clocks are a longstanding tradition in Switzerland and Germany, and Jo Melrose has taken this piece of tradition and shaken it up a bit. By putting her own modern twist on retro-folk designs and reinventing whimsical childhood memories, she has created something that will fit into a contemporary modern home or a traditional vintage decorated home. Jo Melrose has other clock designs that will appeal to both young and old on her website and provides free shipping anywhere in Australia.
What to do with all those vinyl records sitting in the basement taking up space & gathering dust?
Well if your anything like this next artist, you’ll turn them into wonderful works of art that actually serves a purpose. Pavel Sidorenko has re-invented the clock, so to speak. He has transformed the long forgotten, old fashioned vinyl record (what your grandparents used to listen to way before the invention of the iPod) into a modern day work of art. What was once a hip new invention has now been given a new lease on life.
Pavel has turned the records into simple highly recognisable pieces of art that actually tell time. To view more of Pavel’s work visit his website.
Here are a few of his vinyl clocks.
