Leonie Lacouette manages to strike a balance between concepts and influences that otherwise might seem like polar opposites-her elegant clocks successfully reconcile the strict geometries of Minimalism with a warm, approachable palette of colored patinas on the copper and nickel that predominate her designs. Created from a basic language of circles, squares, ovals, and rectangles, the clocks are not only beautiful, but often playful as well. In one design, the otherwise hidden movement of the pendulum swings gently back and forth, revealed by a perfectly circular hole punched through the face of the piece to create a dynamic (and unexpected) game of 'hide-and-seek'.
Leonie Lacouette has been creating beautiful clocks for more than 30 years. Her work includes wall clocks in various sizes, all hand crafted in New York State. Her clocks are made of wood, copper, steel and other metals in designs with clean, contemporary lines. From geometric metal clocks to modern wooden timepieces, my clocks make ideal wedding, anniversary and housewarming gifts.
