Stories from the sea

What a terrific idea! I bet you’d almost smell the salt and feel the stiff seabreeze if you had one of these hand-printed trolley clocks by British designer-makers Abbott and Ellwood on  your mantelpiece. Dubbed ‘Flying Over Smeaton’s Pier’, it’s part of a collection of stainless steel clocks and other sculptural works inspired by the couple’s coastal lifestyle in Cornwall. You’ll find more of this wonderful design aesthetic on their website.
