Concept

The contemplation of finite time, life, death, and beauty.

Each piece resembles a traditional hourglass, but at the bottom of each glass compartment a gold plated animal skull is mounted.

The hourglasses of varying sizes are functional, and filled with black 'sand'.

When the piece is dormant, a gold plated skull at the bottom compartment will peek above the black sand, in the opposite compartment, a full skull will be visible, suspended upside down.

The viewer can turn the hourglass and watch as the golden skull is slowly consumed by the black sand, adding a Momento Mori element. Each one-of-a-kind piece is names the amount of time it takes for the sand to run through the hourglass (eg, 5:03).
