With her debut collection, Time, Clarice explored the workings of watches and clocks. Younger days spent riffling through the drawers in her father’s workshop and dismantling old watches ignited a fascination with the inner construction of chronometers. Clarice inverted ideas about concealing the working parts, making the functional aspects the focal point. This is played out in a series of delicate pieces adorned with the gears, cogs and winding wheels that make up the mechanism of a traditional timepiece.
Each design is created by hand using the traditional machines and techniques that form the backbone of Clarice’s aesthetic. Her rigorous eye for precise construction ensures each piece is finished to the highest standards.
