Crafty Clockmaker Contest Winners Announced

First and foremost, we’d like to thank all who participated in our Crafty Clockmaker contest. The entries for this contest were outstanding, and our team could tell that a lot of time and effort was put into each piece.

Initially there were three categories that the submissions fell into: wall clocks, desk or mantel clocks, and clock jewelry. At contest close, there were no valid submissions for the clock jewelry category. Our judges still wanted to award three winners, so the entries with the highest scores for the wall and desk categories were awarded – plus the entry with the next highest score.

Overall, there was one desk clock winner and two wall clock winners. Congratulations to Bill Johnson, Michael Kamendulis, and Kat Cummins! Please see their winning entries below:

Best of Show: Desk Clock

bill-johnson

Bill Johnson is a woodcarver that carves exclusively in the “Chip Carving” style. He uses this decorative form of carving (done entirely with a single handheld knife – no chisels, gouges, or mallets involved), to decorate all sorts of projects ranging from small ornaments to boxes, wooden display plates, and clocks.

In this case, he was inspired by a stain glass church window.  Bill thought the gothic shape and window’s overall design seemed like the perfect starting place for a clock – especially with a clock insert that would be the perfect size and proportion for that part of a traditional church window.

Bill used Basswood for the body of the clock, which he chose to leave unstained, taking advantage of light and shadows to highlight the intricate chip carved detail.  The clock insert is from our Americana Series – the “Town Square” dial face specifically.

Best of Show: Wall Clock #1

michael-kam

Michael Kamendulis said his mind is always working. He designed and made this creative wall clock after seeing visiting his uncle’s restaurant in Auburn, MA. Michael wanted to add a little spice to his uncle’s wall.

So he created this wall clock and made it look as if you were sitting on one of the bar stools. Based off an Italian meal, you can see the clock is complete with a dish of spaghetti, meatballs, silverware, a napkin, condiments, and a $20 bill. He even added a teacup with resin inside to make it look like the tea is dripping out.

All elements were either drilled and bolted or epoxied to the board.

Best of Show: Wall Clock #2

kat-cummins

Katherine Cummins has an eye for detail that was apparent in all three of her contest entries. Her winning entry caught our judges’ attention with its 3D characteristics.

The hours are strategically marked and placed in pictures frames – all within a larger frame. The background of the clock was beautifully hand-painted, the flowers are handmade, and the beadwork was also done by hand.

Katherine said she likes all of her clocks to be 3D, so she intertwined flowers and stems around / through the numbers. She also designed some of the numbers to appear as if they were floating in mid-air.

Katherine’s favorite thing about this large wall clock is that there are little insects she strategically placed so most wouldn’t notice them on first glance.

Honorable Mention Clocks

As always, our contest judges were amazed by all of the entries – not just the winners. Take a look at the Honorable Mention entries below!

Clock Contest Winners

A big shout out to all who participated in our May 2013 Create-A-Clock contest. Klockit is truly blessed to have such talented customers. Please help us improve the contest for next time by taking this short survey.

So to thank you all for taking the time to participate, we will be sending ALL participants who did not place in the contest a discount code for their next order! If you didn’t submit your clock via email or a private Facebook message, please send an email to Rachel (rappner@primexinc.com) with the subject line ‘Klockit Contest’ to get your discount code. Or leave your email address in a comment to this post below.

Just a reminder, this contest was based on three factors: creativity, design, and story. I’ll be honest and tell you that our panel of judges had a hard time judging the submissions. But, they were able to narrow them down to three very impressive submissions. So without further ado, here are the winners!

1st Place: ‘Bad Boy Bike’

Mark Royall is the big winner! All of his work is created from recycled bicycle parts. This creation is his most impressive piece we’ve seen so far. Check out that detail!

2nd Place: ‘Whimsical Vintage Phone Clock’

Ken Hayden transformed a vintage telephone into a beautiful clock. Since a telephone dial only has 10 finger holes, he fabricated a new dial from a black acrylic fruit platter, and hand-lettered the new numbers and letters.

3rd Place: ‘Walnut Mantel Clock’

Kevin Smith made this mantel clock for his daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. He wanted to make something special – something that would last a lifetime. This was Kevin’s first venture into clock-making!

2010’s Create-A-Clock Contest

2010’s Create-A-Clock Contest will soon be coming to a close.  All entries must be postmarked by December 31, 2010.  This year we will be rewarding the master clock builder with a $500 Klockit Gift Certificate.  When we choose our Master Clock Builder, we are looking for a clock that first is very creative and offers a difficult design, and then we make sure that the clock uses Klockit parts.  All clocks in our competition must use Klockit parts or kits to be eligible for any of the prizes.  Last year’s master clock builder winner, Paul Entz, used exotic woods such as zebrawood to create his grandfather clock.  We liked his clock because it was extremely unique.  We had not seen a clock made from this unusual wood, and how the grain was used in the design added to the piece’s style.  But not only do we look at the difficulty of the clock, but we also read each entry’s story.  For example, 2009’s best floor clock came from Mark Christensen.  He won not only of his great design but also because he was inspired by the 1920’s through 1940’s.  He created the floor clock for his best friend’s wedding present as an heirloom.

Unique designs often capture our judge’s eye, and that was especially true with last year’s best mantle or desk clock winning design.  Scott Phillips had created a space shuttle clock.  He even got the autographs from the STS-125 space shuttle crew (Hubble Repair).  The space shuttle was created using 18 different wood species including a walnut base that he harvested from his family’s farm in Ohio.  Another awesome design was Fran Moore’s 2009 best wall clock of a Russian church.  We can only imagine how much difficulty and time it took to create this intricate wall clock.  There is a lot of detail and intricate carving.

This year’s competition is closing soon, so make sure to include your work of arts in this year’s competition.  We will announce winners in the early part of 2011 once we get all of the submissions and then can judge them.  Good luck this year!  And everyone’s a winner!  All clock photo submissions will receive a $5.00 Klockit Gift Certificate!
