Large Charred Cedar Wood "Water Tower Clock"


This impressive clock is made from historic decommissioned NYC water tower wood. The piece is torched and then sealed with oil to achieve its beautiful color and texture. The high-torque clock motor runs on a single AA battery and adjusts to daylight savings time in the US. This is a bespoke piece so custom dimensions, materials, colors and finishes (both interior and exterior) can be accommodated. Please inquire for pricing. All Stefan Rurak studio pieces are designed and handcrafted in Brooklyn, New York.
