Each of Paul’s creations is loaded with personality. His pirate looks mischievous but not menacing, and the clock bot is charmingly robotic. The tweedy owl has a quirky, mod vibe, and the sockmonkey delivers just the right dose of cuteness. These funky time-keepers can stand on a tabletop or shelf, or hang on a wall in the kitchen, bedroom, or family room.
Paul, who’s trained as an industrial designer, makes each Modern Moose clock to order in his Norfolk, MA studio. He uses birch plywood and nontoxic water-based inks (there are no glues or chemical coatings). He cuts the wood pieces with a laser, sands the pieces by hand, applies color using a special ink-jet printing process, and then assembles the parts by hand to create his layered compositions.
Just in the nick of time.
