Ikepod Hourglass

April 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’ve always been fascinated by glassblowing. It’s a sculptural art where the sculpture requires very precise variables, namely time and heat application. Unlike clay which you can stare at for hours, glass has a very specific formable time frame and the true beauty is seeing the mastery of patience when working with such a droopy medium.

If you haven’t yet heard of Ikepod I highly suggest you look at their lines of watches as well; some nice clean design in there which is always appreciated.

My main reason for bringing up the topic is to share this semi-advertisement video showing the steps to make the above 7kg stainless steel (carbon? sources are mixed) nanoball filled timepiece.
