The L I F E C L O C K

nothing seems out of the ordinary when you first look at this clock. upon closer inspection, you may notice the numbers seem a little high.

this is because one rotation of this clock is equal to the average human lifespan.

the clock is an artwork by bertrand planes which uses an ordinary clock slowed down 61320 times to make each minute equal to a year.

I find this a fascinating yet frightening concept...

Valentine Enigma

a portrait
framed in a brass pin
of a Victorian woman.

once held close,
worn near the heart?

on a vintage seller's table
at an antique market.
in the year 2010.

Lisa Larson

New in shop today are a pair of Lisa Larson's whimsical figurines.

Lisa, a famous Swedish artist, embarks on various series in her work. These pieces are from a series called, "Sekelskifte" which means Turn-of-the-Century in Swedish.

The figures stand 4" + 4 1/2" tall. They are stoneware with a lovely matte, chalky finish.

They are in mint condition and signed on the bottom.

currently on sale at my etsy shop.
