This is one of my designs in QSWO. Etched hammered copper face and pendulum, quartz movement, analine dye with lacquer finish. 15”h x 12”w x 7.5” d.

Several people have asked where they can get copper clock faces. I’m sorry I don’t sell them separately and I don’t know of anyone who has ready made copper dials that you can buy. Thank you in advance for your comments and for looking!

You make beautiful clocks. I didn’t realize that you were also making your copper dials. What is your process for making the dials? Are the numbers a decal, or do you paint them on?

Excellent job, great design, you always use some wonderful looking QSWO.

Terry, I’ve admired your work since I joined LJ just over a year ago. We all like to share our tips and techniques. But sometimes you just have to keep things a secret or all of a sudden you have someone who has copied your style and tries to market a similar style. Do you have much luck in selling your clocks or are they mostly for gifts and just for the joy of making them. I’ve seen your clocks when I do a search for “Mission Clocks” on the internet. I have a clock on there that has been there for almost a year. It’s on the first search page of the Mission Clocks and has stayed on the first page for a while. It’s very simple, inexpensive and I’ve had a lot of positive feed back from people that have seen it in person. In all that time I haven’t a one inquiry about it from it’s exposure on the internet. Talk about frustrating. So again just curious on your success with your clocks.

Another beautiful clock. I really like the “shelf brackets” at the top.

Just stunning. Great design and gorgeous QSWO. Did you fume it?
