grandpa. clock.

Putting inexpensive clock hands and guts into a picture of a clock isn't quite the newest or most elegant thing I've seen, but Jansen + Co. found a way to really make this work with their Grandpa Clock. What I like here is the combination of size (this sucker is a little over 5 feet tall) and the nice retro feel of the clock image, which lends this piece some gravitas. Plus it's functional art, and you get a grandfather clock without having some massive-yet-delicate piece of machinery to worry about. A little of the elegance is lost because Grandpa runs on (snicker) batteries, but hey, it's only $75 and doesn't weigh much at all, so I'll live with the AAs.
