Randall Cleaver -“Moon Days Times 2” cookie tins, bike rim, metal plate, grill pan, plastic balls, “L” brackets, brass plumbing part, new pendulum and clock movements

The inspiration for this came from finding a round disk with 12 holes in it. It was originally from a ceiling light fixture.  It first I was just going to use it as a clock but as the piece grew I ran into an image of the lunar cycle using 12 photos and decided on that direction for the clock. I have a lot of tins but I did not have 12 the same size and I really wanted a consistent size. After scouring the local thrift shops and walking around the neighborhood during recycling days and not finding what I wanted I started looking online and found a cheap cookie tin site. The blue was beautiful. It reminded me of early morning skies with the moon still out. The tins were also a perfect size for the pendulum units.  I decided on the different lengths that went at different speeds to show the different energies throughout the day/month. From frantic to more relaxed. The plastic knobs are painted in the back with glow in the dark paint so in the dark you have a ring of moons.
