Exploring the dimensions of reading time

Artefact is a beautiful representation of time which changes the basic interaction of time reading. It is conversation starter but also lights up a corner of the room. The idea was to break way from the stereotypical representation of time reading i.e. a circular clock.

Time is an elegant concept and we want people to appreciate it and celebrate it. This changes the popular notion of function of vase. More overit is something people would like toplace in their living rooms. In the morning, the light level from vase is dim. But as the day progresses, it starts getting brighter.
