Grommet founder Jules Pieri discovered the clocks on a field trip to SCAD and couldn’t resist giving them a tug. They’re made from silicone rubber, so they’re flexible. Charles casts the clock pieces by hand in his plastics studio. His inspiration came from the melting clocks seen in the work of surrealist painter Salvador Dali, Charles says. He chose to highlight three numbers on the clock face — 9, 2, 5 — to play up our conventional workday hours in graphic typeface. You can stretch a 9-inch square clock into different organic shapes, up to 12 inches square, that are held in place with pegs. If you want a new look for a room, simply rearrange the rubber pegs, which conceal a standard drywall screw that you can twist by hand into place on your wall. It’s a clever, fun way to stretch your imagination.
