Red Squirrel Clock
This wooden wall art clock captures a Red Squirrel doing what they do best. Scurrying from tree to tree in search of food - and getting up to a little mischief along the way! Designed and hand crafted in the Highlands of Scotland, ’Peakaboo' is made from pine and poplar wood and promises to be a worthy addition to any home!
'Peekaboo' Wall Clock
In many parts of the United Kingdom, Red Squirrels have been driven out by their non native Grey cousins. But they are still a familiar sight on my walks here in the great forests of the Cairngorms.
Leaping and scurrying effortlessly from tree to tree, it’s no surprise then that these acrobatic masters became the inspiration for my 'Peekaboo' wall art clock!
How do you capture the beauty and elegance of a Red Squirrel with just a few slivers of poplar wood! A challenge indeed, but one which was well worth rising to!
The artwork for 'Peekaboo' began life on a traditional sketch pad. This was then digitally redrawn and all the elements separated using specialist computer software. Each of these elements are then cut from wood using a high powered laser, individually hand stained and reconstructed to form a 3D version of the original 2D design.
The baseboard is made of pine. The 3D image layers are of poplar. Clocks have a single D ring mounted on the reverse and have been designed to sit flat against the wall when hung (see image of the reverse). The clock requires one AA battery (supplied).
Please note: All 'Off the Wall' products are entirely hand made. Therefore whilst I make every effort to maintain uniformity, there will inevitably be variations from one item to another (eg exact colour, knotting and grain in the wood etc). That's what makes each wall art unique!
