George Nelson Ceramic Clocks

We all get used to the way things around us look like. Shoes have a certain design and so do chairs, tables and other home accessories like clocks and vases, etc. But some creative people like George Nelson thought it would be a good idea to give all these usual things a new look, a fresh design and construction that will surprise everyone. This happened back in the 1950s and the whole world recognized Nelson’s genius. It was back in 1953 that Nelson designed the Ceramic Clocks, the clocks that had a ceramic body and a totally unusual but interesting design that you can admire in these pictures. The clocks were never manufactured until recently when Vitra decided to bring them back to light and make them according to the original plans of the designer.

George Nelson Ceramic Clocks have a playful design and an unusual shape. However, they look very nice, close to being considered works of art, just like the sculptures of Brancusi and Isamu Noguchi that were actually inspirational for Nelson. These clocks are made of glazed ceramics and most of them are immaculate, having only a few touches of red and black that emphasize their elegance and design. Each clock in this collection can be purchased for $305.
