There’s no doubt that vinyl records are their best when used as intended—on a turntable. That doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate repurposed uses, like these upcycled clocks by Estonian designer Pavel Sidorenko.
He turns records into wall clocks with silhouetted images cut into them. “Discreetly crafted on the theme of scenography or animal creatures, the collection comes in a variety of story-telling silhouettes while retaining the grooves and record labels reminiscent of the heydays of acoustic recordings,” say Sidorenko’s website.
The clocks feature a variety of images an take many forms, including a rabbit, gun, teapot, as well as several abstract patterns.
His website goes on to say Sidorenko aims to create functional and playful art, something he successfully does with the clocks in his Re Vinyl series.
You can view all of his clocks on Sidorenko’s website, or purchase them online.
