Contemporary Cuckoo Clocks
Expressions of Time has begun carrying cuckoo clocks from Sternreiter and Rombach und Haas. Each offers the traditional carved cuckoo clock but Rombach und Haas also offers several contemporary designs. At first glance, you'd never know these clock were cuckoo clocks.
Combining stylistic cues from centuries-old clock making with modern design, this clock is a real treasure. It fits perfectly in a very traditional or very modern decor. This fine clock features an animated cuckoo bird which appears and calls the hour and half hour. The sound is mechanically created using wooden whistles and bellows. This clock features a carved, wooden bird, shut-off switch and 2-year warranty.
This clock was made in the the Black Forest of Germany and is certified by the VDS.
This is a beautiful and lovingly crafted piece is part of a new series of art works by artists and designers of the Black Forest in Germany. The “ART CLOCKS” are each one-of-a-kind pieces, signed by the artist.
This particular piece was designed and painted by Selina Haas. Selina is a young artist, active in the burgeoning cultural scene of the Black Forest area, who is interested in a fresh and new approach to traditional forms. While the cuckoo clock is an icon of traditional home decoration, Ms. Haas’s work renews the concept utilizing organic and recognizable images.
You no longer need a traditional decor to have a cuckoo clock.
