This is a piece that waited a long time for its final element. I had created the pool, the paths and the “plantings” of the segments between the paths, then after several months added the edge, but the pool needed something. My husband suggested a mermaid, but I don’t do humanoid figures that well, and besides, it is rather a small pond for such a creature. Then I came across the clock mechanism at a store, and bought it, though with no particular project in mind. I had brought the UFO (Un-Finished Object) with me to the art guild room which has provided me with a good bit of inspiration, and then the idea of mounting the clock on it hit. It is a working clock, battery powered, and it filled the space so nicely!
