THE ART OF TIMEKEEPING
Berd Vay’e breathes new life into the appreciation of horology with distinctive,
one-of-a-kind conversation pieces like no contemporary art you’ve ever seen before.
DECONSTRUCTING TIME INTO ART
Expert curators fastidiously source 50-to-100 year-old timepieces and parts with a true passion for horology – from collectible 19th century backwind pocket watches, to remnants of 1900s Americana in the form of stop clocks once belonging to railroad conductors.
DESIGN & PREPARATION
Each and every gear, barrel, wheel, spring, escapement wheel, pinion, bridge, and hands is storied. Components are restored, polished and meticulously positioned, balanced in precious, crystal clear shatter-resistant Lucite®
FORM & FINISHING
Each Berd Vay’e piece is casted with 8-to-10 layers over a 24 hour period. The sculpture is then baked, carefully protecting it from the formation of air bubbles or imperfections thus resulting in a seamless, crystal clear sculpture.
