Base: Marty Van Vliet and Mark
both literally and figuratively the foundation of the tower.
poured concrete base is punctuated with antique farm parts and machinery
famed quotes presented on the steps hint at humankindsí fascination with Time
and itís struggles to measure and control it.

structural steel frame is fabricated from new materials.
The whimsical clockworks are comprised of reimagined
components from the former Krug Furniture factory in Kitchener and re-purposed
machinery parts from local farms.
Face: Neil Hanscomb, Hanscomb Glass
Comprised of many individual, hand-cut pieces, the face was assembled and fused in a kiln, then finished with custom crafted hands.
refinement of the face completes the clockworks as they transform from the bulky
lower levels to the more decorative top.
