The Fragmented Clock is a contemporary take on the grandfather clock. The clock is carved from solid maple wood, an unusual material in the region, and incorporates mother-of-pearl inlay. The diamonds form an intricate pattern from the top, becoming distorted and more fragmented as they reach the base, until there is no more carving, reflecting a purity of design. The mother of pearl inlay is also scattered, showing the dying craft as time passes, requiring meticulous workmanship for each diamond shape to be carved into its four facets. The clock itself is fragmented into four pieces, as if time were broken into units. The secret doors hold memories collected over time. The Fragmented Clock requires four hand carvers and six craftsmen specializing in mother of pearl inlay, 500 hours of work, and 30 kilos of mother of pearl to create the final object.
