Time for Tea!
I have just completed this new wall clock made using repurposed vintage wooden tea crates.
The design of the clock is based on the original plans for a traditional full case wall clock, I have simplified the design to suit the salvaged materials used.
The numerals on the clock face have been hand painted, using a stencil font to tie in with the original tea crate lettering.
Several different tea crates have been used, the main one on the front says "Tunga Dust".
Tunga tea is grown in Southern India, and dust is the grade of tea, which comes in many forms, dust is normally used in tea bags.
I love using these old tea chests they are full of character each one tells a story and has had a long life and is very well-travelled.
This is currently for sale in my Etsy shop
Time to put my feet up and have a cuppa!
