Blush Clock is a paper object made to bear traces of time.

Blush Clock is a paper object designed to bear the marks of time. To create the timepiece, two kilograms of fiber pulp were poured into a mold, with the material serving as a container for the passage of time. Despite its thinness, paper has a long history of carrying expressions by others and also embodies the message of a well-crafted material.

Blush Clock is made of a solid block of fiber, constructed without adhesives or resins. It achieves a stable and rigid unibody through a proprietary fiber suspension and compression process that combines traditional papermaking craft and architectural rammed earth techniques. This hybrid method allows the Clock to resist the natural deterioration of paper and prolong its longevity through the extensive massing of its fibers.

The Clock's pinkish blush, made from natural insect dye commonly used in cosmetics, adds a sense of humanness to the object and highlights the contrast between the fragility of the material and the roughness of the process used to create it.
