Mine all mine

This year I got my own Christmas present - this absolutely fabulous wall clock from Paulaart. Actually Santa came two months earlier as if I didn't snatch it, it would probably hang on someone else's wall by now. I fell in love with it long time ago and when Paula discounted it in the shop I just couldn't resist anymore. It has an amazing story as it's made of a cow watering bowl she got from an old barn in Vermont. The place was demolished shorty after for building something else. So I'm the proud owner not only of a wall clock, but of a piece of history! As Paula said, imagine all the cow tongues that have dipped inside of this bowl! :)

Paula makes contemporary artworks from found and recycled objects. Her work has always fascinated me. She is one of those 'natural born talents' who struggles to live through art without making compromises. She has an interesting blog (one of the few I always read) and very much alive at http://selftaughtartist.blogspot.com/ .


Thank you my friend! I love the inspiring tic-tac of your work!!

Very cool Teo, you lucky thing! And I have just ordered myself a french kitchen clock, but it's got nothing on yours! Where are you going to put it? In the studio, as you bind? :) Have a wonderful Christmas. xx
