Wane ,Clock

A clock with a face in the shape of the lunar phase which has been considered as most beautiful in Japan since ancient times. Unlike usual clocks, the clock-face of WANE is placed in front of the hour and minute hands, hiding them more or less depending on the time. They unveil themselves where the shaded part of the moon would be, thus emphasizing precious times of the day. The clock-face and hands are made of powder-coated aluminium and mounted on a standard clock-frame.Photography by Takumi Ota.
