on the clock

NC Clocks

Ed and Kate Coleman don’t punch a clock at work. But they do make them.

In their small studio in Swannanoa in western North Carolina, the husband and wife team create color-happy clay clocks in three different styles — and in various sizes, colors and textures.

Styles include the hand-cut Multi Clocks (about $56) and the Box Clocks (about $100), which hang horizontally or vertically. The faces of the Textured Clocks (about $65 and shown above) feature tiny points, cones and lines. With their contemporary look, the clocks will add instant interest to a wall.

Besides clocks, the couple makes other ceramic goods, ranging from sculptural Freke bowls to their popular vases and wall tiles (shown below). The four-inch Clique Tiles ($28 to $30) are tops with collectors and others. They feature abstract designs or recognizable forms and work better as a group. New tiles are created every year.

This month the artists added small cups ($16 to $25, pictured below) to their clever line of everyday art. The fun cups, in 2 ounces or five ounces, are made for espresso, juice, water or whiskey.
