The Sevres Vase Clock is is a new type of timepiece that tells the hour by tapping on the surface of a vase to produce sound. An adjustable hammer mechanism allows a variety of vases to be used, thereby permitting a range of chimes to be generated. By Georgios Maridakis.
An adjustable hammer gently knocks on any vase you place on the stand on the hour, every hour. Different vases produce different sounds so potentially every home’s clock looks and sounds different just from one device.
