Experience a three-dimensional timepiece crafted from diatomaceous earth with shifting shades, embracing time's passage through Japanese plastering mastery.
The Earth PLA Clock is crafted from diatomaceous earth, a substance derived from diatoms, a type of algae that accumulates on the seafloor and solidifies into rocks over time. Employing a traditional Japanese plastering technique, this clock's design skillfully highlights the unique attributes and ambiance of the material. The result is a three-dimensional masterpiece that not only captures the play of light across its surface but also mirrors the passage of time. This timepiece serves as an elegant addition to interior spaces.
