Moss Gallery invited designer Kiki van Eijk to create a series of metal wire mantel clocks in 14 different finishes based on her floating frame works of brass and ceramic. The result is the "One More Time : Floating Frame Mantel Clock"
Rendered in ceramic and bent wire "drawings", the skeletal representations of solid forms are executed in various metals and finishes such as oxidized copper, shiny copper, anodized metals in colors, matte silver and even real gold-plated copper.
dimensions: 13.3" x 5.5", height: 16"
Prices range from $2,500 to $4,200.00 (for the gold-plated copper edition). To see the whole range of 14 finishes and to purchase, go here

Not a stranger to clock designs, Kiki has also made these wonderful mantel clocks:
