RECRAFTED

Creative recycling in reclaimed wood, copper and slate

Welsh Slate clocks

I started making clocks from reclaimed Welsh roof slate I had been using for plant pots. I tried various ideas for face designs and came up with a few that have proved to be very popular. I didn't like any of the hands that are available so decided to make my own out of recycled copper and produced some different designs which go well with the slate.

All the slate used for making these clocks has been saved from various buildings in Cardiganshire such as barn and house roofs and also a church. Usually the slate will have been on a roof for many years before being replaced and may be 200 or more years old. The slate will have originally come from one of the quarries around Bethesda, Llanberis and Blaenau Ffestiniog in north Wales.
