Design Buzz: Oakland Designer Turns Used Bicycle Parts Into Mod Wall ClocksAuthor:Stephanie Orma
Whether you’re a pedal-pushing road warrior or a casual joyrider, you have to admit–bikes are pretty darn cool to look at. Well, thanks to Oakland-based craftster, Liz Dickey, we can now admire the two-wheel cruisers all the time. The Portland transplant turns recycled bicycle parts into mod designer wall clocks.
Dickey spiffs up greasy old bike chain rings and then uses discarded fabric scraps for the clocks’ background. From French wool plaid to faux leather, tweed to bamboo-like wallpaper, the industrial metal paired with different colors and textures of reclaimed textiles is a brilliant, gear-shifting design idea.
To see more of these bike parts-turned-clocks, visit the designer’s online Etsy shop, 1byLiz, or check them out in person at SF’s upcoming Renegade Craft Fair on July 9th and 10th at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion.
