Homer clock with rhodonite
The mantel clock is made according to old Russian technologies of the 19th century from natural materials: bronze, rhodonite. Bronze clock elements are additionally hand-chased by master artists.
In the manufacture of clockes, colossal manual labor is used to ensure that these products have the most textured pattern, similar to the natural one. The artist needs to repeat nature in a static material – bronze. After embossing and processing, the bronze elements are covered with a patina.
Each stone has its own color scheme. The pattern of the stone is selected by the master so that the lines of the pattern smoothly pass from one to the other, creating the effect of a single stone. Each clock made is unique and may differ from the photographs presented on the site.
The clock case is made of spectacular and original texture of natural rhodonite stone.
The technique of Russian mosaic is to create the illusion of a solid stone and emphasize the natural beauty of the stone. The clock uses Hermle spring mechanisms with a classic beat or a melody that can be turned off. All clock models are subject to repair, they can be disassembled, cleaned and, if necessary, reassembled, giving them their original appearance.
The harmonious proportions of the clockes and impeccable workmanship give this piece a special sophistication.
Homer is an ancient Greek poet-storyteller, the creator of the epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey. About half of the found ancient Greek literary papyri are excerpts from Homer.
Traditionally, Homer is portrayed as blind. Most likely, this idea is not based on the real facts of his life, but is a reconstruction characteristic of the genre of antique biography.
