Comprising twelve sections made using a unique mix of metal particulate and gypsum, the design of this clock highlights the inextricable relationship of the material and time. Each section is put through a controlled oxidisation process that can last weeks or months, producing an infinite variety of hues and patterns.
The Rust Timepiece is a special addition to the Rust collection by PRIN London, designed and produced for Electro Craft. It joins a growing collection of Rust homeware first presented during the London Design Festival in 2015.
