A beautiful and unique, hand made wall clock inspired by Brighton Pavilion. The stars above are gilded in 23 carat gold leaf. Each one is enamelled by hand and because of the nature of the process will be unique. It measures approx 17 cm x 15 cm and features a battery operated quartz movement.
Enamelling is the art of fusing glass to metal. the design is painstakingly built up in a succession of firings at temperatures of around 900 degrees centigrade. Typically each piece will have anything from 6 - 12 firings although complicated pieces can have as many as 20. Colours and effects can be varied by altering the temperature of the kiln and length of firing meaning that each piece or pair is unique.
Visits to Brighton and its magical Palace were a very special part of my childhood. I loved hearing stories of ‘Prince George’, and to me as a child, the Palace itself appeared as something straight out of world of fairies, myths and legends. When I visited India and the Palaces of Rajasthan as an adult, I was moved to renewed appreciation of the splendour and exuberance of Brighton Pavilion. I have created this clocks in tribute to the delight I felt as a child, and the joy that this wonderful building inspires in me today. I want to bring something of this magic into the home.
