This is a collection of clocks
made by Howard Miller Clock Company ...
They are all designed by George Nelson & Associates unless noted otherwise.
The above pics are all of "ball clocks"... the last one is the rare large size.
Is the ball clock really by George Nelson?
Although the ball clock design is
generally credited to George Nelson, it was actually the result of a 1947
brainstorming session between Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Buckminster Fuller
and Irving Harper; Nelson himself is on record as believing that the idea
first came from Noguchi. The design process is mentioned in Stanley Abercrombie's
book "George Nelson: The Design of Modern Design."
Can anyone comment on this???? Please email me!
The one above I believe
was designed by Arthur Umanoff.
"Steering Wheel" clock.
This great clock (above) was designed by Frederick Weinberg and
was not made by Howard Miller, but I put it here for fun, as it is quite similar to the
Howard Miller ball clocks, only this one is more sculptural.
This blue one is called a Meridian Clock, made of pottery in Italy.
The clocks above belong to me and my friends: Nick and Holly Leo (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chris Marzec (email@example.com), Scott Vermillion (firstname.lastname@example.org), Carlos Cardoza (email@example.com), and Anthony Wolfe (Anthonywolfe@aol.com);
and others I have seen at shows and stores around the country. Sorry, I am not selling them! You can look, but don't touch!
Email me if you are selling any clocks like these! I LOVE THEM!
