Creativity settles everywhere. You see so many creative things around you. One of them is different types of clocks. But have you ever seen a sand clock? The sand clock that we are about to show is inspired by a statement given by Einstein. The sand used in the clock was created by Studio Ayaskan. The clock is brilliantly designed and looks beautiful.

The analog clock is now seen as a nostalgic piece, and often used as a conceptual work of art, rather than for telling time anymore. But this clock will be referred to see time as well because of its unique way of doing so. Check out how it will show time on the upcoming pages...

Another thing that matters the most while making a clock is the design. As digital timepieces continue to dominate, designers are choosing to re-purpose the analog clock as decoration or conceptual art piece. Sand, another conceptual clock, makes telling the actual time a little difficult, but more than compensates with its creative presentation.

The idea for Sand comes from this Albert Einstein quote: "Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter." This is the relation of this clock with Einstein. Check out further pages to know more about this clock...

This clock is actually a part of series. It belongs to a series called "Ripples of Time," which also includes Sand's complementary timepiece, appropriately dubbed "Water". Studio Ayaskan explains on their website- "Sand, inspired by Zen Gardens, is the gradual formation and flattening of a ripple pattern over a period of twelve hour cycles. Water, on the other hand, tells the ephemeral time through concentric circles in the form of endless waves that ripple by the second. It is the landscapes and the cycles found in nature, that both the projects represent."

The biggest confusion with this clock is that how it shows time. So, obviously at this point you're wondering how this thing tells time. As time passes, the clock hand slowly combs sand in a circular pattern. And depending on the positioning of the hand and the pattern in the sand is how you can tell the time of day. Beginning in the morning, the comb begins to leave a groove. Check out the video to see how this looks while working.
