Water Clock


"This elegantly minimal clock lets you create your own custom time-telling device using a combination of plates, cups and liquid of your choice."


"Designed by Kouichi Okamoto with ceramicist Daniel Jo, the Water Clock consists of a small fired clay base topped with a pair of magnetic spheres. A pair of powerful magnets underneath the delicate clay surface move the tiny orbs in a circular path to tell the current time. The red shows the minutes, the white one the hours."


"While the spheres are magnetic, they’re also buoyant, so if you fill up a glass with water, the 'hands' of the clock actually float on the surface of the water. Each of the spheres can be placed into any dish, plate or other vessel."


2"H x 7.85"W x 7.85"D.
