This wooden wall clock is the perfect gift for anyone that loves geometric shapes, beekeeping, laser cut designs or just someone you love!

...product...
This clock is inspired by a honeycomb. The hexagonal cells are randomly placed and either filled or left empty. The side of the wood is black, resulting in beautiful depth and contrast. The clock is very abstract.

...finishing...
The wood has been sanded. Battery (1x AA) not included. The clock produces a soft ticking sound.

...background...
You might be wondering why bees have chosen to make perfect hexagonal cells to build their hive?

There are two possible explanations for the reason that honeycomb is composed of hexagons, rather than any other shape. One, given by Jan Bro┼╝ek and proved much later by Thomas Hales, is that the hexagon tiles the plane with minimal surface area. Thus, a hexagonal structure uses the least material to create a lattice of cells within a given volume.

Another, given by D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson, is that the shape simply results from the process of individual bees putting cells together: somewhat analogous to the boundary shapes created in a field of soap bubbles. In support of this, he notes that queen cells, which are constructed singly, are irregular and lumpy with no apparent attempt at efficiency.

...colour...
natural birch wood

...size...
approximately 24cm / 9,5 inch

...note...
Some assembly is necessary due to keeping the package flat to reduce shipping costs. Instructions are included.

...silence...
Do not like the soft ticking sound that a normal clock mechanism makes? Purchase the silent mechanism together with your clock.
