Hammer Clock

Hammer Clock


Hammer Clock

Daniel J. Martinez

Announces the passage of time; a functional element recalling streetside clocks found typically on a main street and pays tribute to hard work and blacksmiths in the original colony of Anaheim. The pocket watch hangs at a perilous angle resting on a hammerhead twelve feet off the ground, depicting the precarious nature of time – we never have enough time and are constantly on the edge. Its clock face is a map of the world, locating Anaheim in a global setting.
