Last week, we let you know about amazing auto inspired sculptures made by African artists from Swahili Imports. Now this time, we take you to the Green Wisdom shop, where you can find a range of wall clocks made out of discarded metal hubcaps. Combining the time honored legacy of automakers like Volkswagen, Ford, Pontiac, Chevy and Mercedes Benz with awesome-looking wall clocks, the artists have done a truly commendable job.
While the Pontiac Hubcap Clock owes its origin to a used vintage 60’s or 70’s Pontiac hubcap, the Camaro Hubcap Clock aims to revitalize the 68-72 Camaro, Impala, Belain and Biscayne models. Next timepiece, i.e. VW Hubcap Clock utilizes a second-hand, vintage 11-inch metal VW hubcap. Similarly, the 1950s Ford Hubcap Clock takes you back to 1950s when Ford, Thunderbird and Fairlane used to rule the roads. Finally yet importantly, the Mercedes Benz Hubcap Clock is an upright tribute to the all-famous Mercedes Benz line of luxury cars.
Each of the above-mentioned wall clocks run of an AA battery. Available at Etsy for $50-70, the auto inspired, sustainably built wall clocks will add a distinct, retro grace to you office, bedroom or the living room.
