I aim to create unique and individual clocks from original vintage Nixie tubes,
and other original bits of equipment that I can find or save from going into landfill.
Nixie tubes were once popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s and used in many electronic gadgets of the time,
from petrol pumps to military equipment.
The tubes have a distinctive orange glow and real depth of movement
as each digit is stacked behind the other within the tube.
Every clock is handmade, more a piece of art than a timepiece –
by their very nature they are individually constructed from recycled equipment, or original vintage items.
