Melting Watch Stand by back2root Melting Watch Stand by back2root
I created this stand for a fellow artist as a custom item to perfectly fit his pocket watch.

Designed to look like melting wax, each drip I have hand carved from a piece of recycled black walnut.

Standing approximately 20cm high, this stand perfectly holds the pocket watch with a rebated section to accommodate the watch chain.

The whole item has been thoroughly hand sanded and finished with a gloss lacquer.
