This clock was inspired by radioactivity - hence the name. The central core (the raw wood disk) symbolizes the atom that emits the particles all over the space.
Raw material: at selection of raw material the main principle I follow is to keep the natural appearance of the wood as much as possible - thus i use plywood, for it bears the wood grain, still strong and thin enough. Owing to this naturalness small changes in colour and pattern may occur (compared to the images attached).
Manufacturing process: the central dial and the spikes of this particular clock are laser cut from a 6mm birch plywood board, after polishing the spikes are hand painted to 3 different shades of blue and then distributed evenly and clamped manually in the dial (see the last photo). No glue is used at assembling. The central disk remains untreated. Owing to the manual clamping process no two clocks are identical.
The movement: is non-ticking, runs with 1 AA size battery (not included in the package owing to fire protection reasons). Basic hands are made of white metal. Unique plastic hands are available for extra 3USD (the photos show an example of these unique hands).
diameter: 29cm (11 1/2"),
