it’s a rather long story as to how i ended up being the maker of recycled LP wall clocks, but the short version of it is that as a long-time dj, i had a LOT of unusable vinyl lps (promos) sitting around my apartment. it pained me to throw them out, so instead, i decided to recycle them as a canvas for my (at the time) new-found interest in stencilling, which had grown out of my own political activism.
after trying to sell my new stencil “paintings” for a while with little success, a girlfriend of mine at the time suggested i put clock mechanisms in them. i was at first resistant, but the concept of making them functional art intrigued me, and sure enough, once i did, sales picked up. i’ve been making them ever since.
over the years, i’ve made many designs and branched out to 10-inch and 7-inch record clocks as well, though the 12-inch is still the bestseller.
you can see below is a slideshow gallery of clock images (from my flickr site) i’ve made over the years. if you see something you like below, just get in touch – i’m happy to do custom design/color combinations and occasionally can accommodate new custom design ideas.
