Pennsylvania has redefined the concept of looking at time. Beer bottles have been put to an ultimate use. If you have forgotten to carry your watch with you and are in search of a wall clock at the Philadelphia International Airport’s Terminal A-West between now and August, then you have to check out the 20 foot long clock made of 300 recycled inter meshing beer bottles made by Rick Stanley and his son, Vince at Stanley Clockworks near Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.
How this works is as follows. Like a normal clock mechanism, even the Beer Bottle Clock functions somewhat the same way. Equipped with three separate dials for hours, minutes and seconds, the clock boasts of having used the best beer bottles in its creation (Yuengling Lager bottles). So, in case you are drinking beer with your friends and wondering what to do with the empty bottles so that your mom does not come to know about it, juts hop over to the local recycling center to contribute to this eco-friendly asset creation. Ranging in length upto 25 feet, around 300 bottles of Yuengling Lager bottles have contributed in the making this creation. I honestly salute the creator of this clock, Rick Stanley and Vince for coming up with such an ingenious idea of using beer bottles to create such a beautiful clock. The accolades would nevertheless go to the sources which provided them with the raw materials (bottles). Here is a special mention to the local recycling center, the local bar and whatever source could be tapped.
In addition to this, if you are looking for more works of Stanley Clockworks, then you are in for a bit of luck. Adorning their list is yet another piece of devious 24-foot long “Walking clock”. The name only intrigues the reader. Let me go ahead and give you a brief about this as well. Just for those who may be interested in looking up more pieces of creative art by Stanley Clockworks, the Walking Clock has been devised out of a dozen pairs of shoes, which actually keep track of time by walking back and forth over somewhat 2700 miles each year. Surprising it sure is. Here is hoping that the clock would be a success and would show the perfect time, making many catch their flights on time.
