This piece was commissioned for UNIX founder Doug Mcllroy, to be present to him at the 2009 Linux festival in Columbus, OH.  I designed the casing of the clock and executed the woodworking. The materials are cherry, ebonized walnut, brass, and copper.  My sister and brother-in-law did all of the copper and brass plate etchings.  There are no hands on the clock, but rather, the faces revolve to keep time.
